Last Friday, cleaning staff have seen cleaning the entire place, leaving it empty.

“The decision to ban access was taken on Wednesday, and could affect millions of Muslims ahead of the fasting month of Ramadan and the annual hajj pilgrimage,” Euro News reported.

The total number of coronavirus in Saudi Arabia is now 20.
