Not Just Hot Weather, Here are 6 Factors that Cause Many Hajj Pilgrims to Die

Extreme Heat

Hot weather in Saudi Arabia, with temperatures reaching up to 51.8 degrees Celsius, is believed to be the main factor behind the high death toll. Despite warnings from the Saudi Ministry of Health to avoid heat exposure and to drink plenty of water, many pilgrims have fallen victim to heatstroke.

               

"Sanitation Problems and Crowded Tents"

According to several reports, mismanagement by the Saudi government has worsened the situation. As a result, a crisis has occurred in many areas designated for Hajj pilgrims. They say that accommodation and facilities are not well-managed, overcrowded tents lack cooling facilities and adequate sanitation.

               

"Transportation Issues"

The following is the translation of the given 'Bahasa' text to 'English' while preserving any HTML tags: "The pilgrims are often forced to walk long distances in the scorching heat, and some people blame the road obstacles and poor transportation management."

"Slow Medical Assistance"

Many hajj pilgrims reported receiving inadequate medical care. According to several pilgrims, ambulances and first aid were not available for those experiencing heat exhaustion or other health issues.

"The Congregation Does Not Have Official Documents".

"To perform the hajj pilgrimage, a hajj pilgrim must apply for a special hajj visa. However, there are also those who attempt to go on the hajj pilgrimage without adequate documentation. Unofficial hajj is believed to contribute to excessive mortality rates. Hajj pilgrims who do not have adequate documentation often avoid authorities, even when they need assistance."

"Older Adults and Illness"

Many pilgrims depart for Hajj at the end of their lives, either after saving their whole lives or with the hope of dying and being buried in the Holy Land. For example, there are a number of pilgrims who consider dying while performing the Hajj pilgrimage as something desirable. This is one of the causes of pilgrims' deaths during the Hajj pilgrimage every year.
