The Deputy Secretary-General of the Holy Shrine, Saad Al-Hajiya, said in a press statement followed by Shia Waves that “the decline of the Corona virus contributed to the influx of millions of pilgrims to the Holy Shrine a week before the visit, unlike the past few years, when pilgrims arrived just two days before the visit due to the pandemic.”
