(MENAFN - The Peninsula) The Supreme Council of Health (SCH) advised pilgrims returning from Umrah or Haj to seek medical attention if they have fever within two weeks as they could be screened for MERS.

People with pre-existing major medical conditions such as diabetes, chronic lung diseases, immunodeficiency, above 65, pregnant women and children are more likely to develop severe MERS infections if they are exposed to the virus.

Pilgrims are also advised to consult a healthcare provider before travelling to reviw the risk and postponing pilgrimage is advisable, in needed.


They are also advised to get vaccinated at least two weeks prior to travel and maintain good personal hygiene.

SCH also urged pilgrims to avoid close contact with camels, farms, non-pasteurised camel milk or improperly cooked meat.

The Department of Public Health is coordinating with Qatar Haj Committee to have a set of preventive measures for pilgrims in coordination with health authorities in Saudi Arabia, SCH officials told a press conference.
