MAKKAH: Sheikh Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Sudais, president of the General Presidency for the Affairs of the Two Holy Mosques, inaugurated Wednesday thermal cameras to detect feverish worshippers at the entrance of the Grand Mosque.

Al-Sudais praised this modern technique promoting the safety and security of worshippers and halting the spread of the coronavirus.

He said: “It is our duty to use technology in the service of the safety and security of our people, to promote preventive and precautionary measures and fight the pandemic.”

The cameras deployed at the Grand Mosque were distributed at King Fahd, Ismael, and Safa gates, and are operated around the clock.
