​ MOH: Health Tips for Umrah Performers
14 April 2019

​​The Ministry of Health (MOH) has underlined the importance of washing fruits and vegetables before consuming them, as well as washing hands before and after eating to prevent poisoning. 

In an awareness infographic published on its twitter page within its campaign​: «Healthy Umrah»​, MOH has advised Umrah performers to ensure kitchen utensils being hygienic, as well as avoiding buying food from dubious street vendors. As part of its tips series for this Umrah season, MOH has highlighted the importance of verifying food expiry date, not leaving food uncovered or unwrapped, and the risk of keeping cooked food longer.

It is worth mentioning that such awareness-raising activities come in continuation of MOH's efforts to maintain the health and safety of all community members, to promote health awareness, and to urge individuals to adopt healthy behaviors.
