As the Saudi government has banned tawaf at Holy Ka’aba amid the rising number of coronavirus patients in the country, a video is viral on social media, which shows a flock of birds hovering around the Holy Ka’aba just like the humans do.
It can be seen that the birds circling the Holy Ka’aba again and again.
The ban on tawaf was imposed a week ago with an aim to stop the spread of coronavirus as the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared it a pandemic.
The number of coronavirus cases has reached 62. That’s why the Saudi government on Thursday temporarily suspended travel of citizens and residents and halted flights with several countries, including Pakistan.
According to the Saudi state agency (SPA) which cited an interior ministry source, the decision covers Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, the European Union, Switzerland, Philippines, Sudan, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Eritrea, Kenya, Djibouti and Somalia. The Kingdom also suspended entry to those coming from these countries.
