Around 165,000 Haj pilgrims will be arriving from Pakistan this year, and will have a large group of medical workers to monitor their health conditions, reports Arab News.
Pakistani Ambassador Umar Khan Alisherzai said the first Haj flight carrying the pilgrims would arrive in Jeddah on October 22. He said the Pakistani medical team would work in coordination with Saudi health officials to prevent the spread of swine flu.
