The Saudi Arabian ministry of health last week approved a package of new health measures. They include the construction of a 400-bed hospital at Aziziah in the district of Mecca, to be built at a cost of SR300 million (80 million). An emergency hospital is also to be built at Mina, to relieve pressure on the existing general hospital during the pilgrimage season, at a cost of SR60 million. The ministry of health has also recruited 80 consultant doctors from the US and Europe, as well as 80 nurses from Malaysia, to serve at the Mecca health centres.
