Saudi Arabia closes 71 mosques again

Saudi Arabia closes 71 mosques again

Saudi religious authorities have temporarily closed 71 mosques across the Kingdom over a rise in coronavirus infections due to non-compliance with precautionary measures and preventive protocols, though the mosques were reopened on a limited scale after a long lockdown.

Minister of Islamic affairs, Abdul Latif Bin Abdul Aziz al-Sheik has confirmed the matter on Tuesday. 

In a statement, he said “More than 70 mosques have been closed again. The failure of these mosques to abide by preventive protocols has led to more COVID-19 cases being reported.” 

The mosques will be completely sterilized during the temporary closure, Al-Sheikh added.
