Al Zarouni also shed light on the adoption of a sophisticated electronic system to enhance health services for pilgrims and the availability of a database of pilgrims, that facilitates the medical team's job to intervene quickly in emergencies, and the preparation of daily medical reports on the health status of each pilgrim.
