A 62-YEAR-OLD man from Kuala Nerang, Kedah, died in Mecca on June 25, while performing the haj, Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Religious Affairs) Idris Ahmad said.
According to the minister, the man had suffered serious bacterial infections and breathed his last at the King Faisal Hospital.
As of Saturday, Idris said 13 Malaysian pilgrims were receiving treatment at the Tabung Haji (TH) treatment centres in Mecca, while three others were in Saudi hospitals.
“Tabung Haji is always concerned with the welfare of every pilgrim, hence trying its best in providing them with the best medical services,” he told a press conference in Mecca.
The minister reminded all pilgrims to always comply with the rules and regulations set by the Saudi government and to adhere to all instructions given by TH staff.
“I also hoped that all Malaysian pilgrims will avoid getting involved in unlawful activities.
“The government of Malaysia and TH are closely monitoring all issues relating to their safety and security in the Holy Land,” he said.
At the same time, he said the pilgrims were also advised to take care of themselves and not to be too exposed to hot weather which can cause heatstroke. – Bernama, July 4, 2022.
