Hundreds of Muslims returning to Turkey from the Umrah pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia were being housed in student dormitories Sunday as part of quarantine measures against the novel coronavirus, APA reports citing Anadolu Agency.

 

 

A total of 362 passengers went through health checks after arriving at Konya Airport.

 

 

They were later bused to dormitories located on the campus of Selcuk University in Konya province for a 14-day quarantine.

 

On Feb. 27, Saudi Arabia suspended the entry of pilgrims seeking to perform Umrah due to the disease.
