Mosques in Makkah to be disinfected with product that decontaminates in 30 seconds

Published 18 Jul,2020 via Asharq Alawsat (English Edition) - As part of Saudi Arabia’s efforts to curb the spread of the novel coronavirus, a campaign has been launched in the holy city of Makkah to disinfect 250 mosques using MicroSafe, an eco-friendly alcohol-free disinfectant composed of oxidized water, ensuring the safety and health of worshippers.

The Hadiyah Charity Association, in partnership with the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Dawah and Guidance, started the disinfection process, which was launched from the Salaf Al-Saleh Mosque.

Mansour al-Amer, the head of the association, said several precautionary and preventive measures to reduce the spread of the coronavirus and ensure the safety of worshippers will be implemented as part of the initiative, noting that the technology has been approved by the Saudi Food and Drug Authority.

Safa Qadumi, the CEO of MicroSafe Group, said the product does not include chemicals, leave any side effects or agitate the skin eyes and has no scent, because it is composed of oxidized water. It is used worldwide to disinfect hospitals and ambulances, and can be used at mosque facilities and carpets, making them decontaminated and safe for worship, in as little as 30 seconds.

The Saudi Ministry of Health registered 2,613 new cases of COVID 19 on Friday, raising the total number to 245,851. It said 3,539 recoveries were recorded, raising the tally to 191,161. Thirty-seven new deaths were registered, bringing the total to 2,407 deaths.
