Saudi Arabia reopened more than 90,000 mosques on Sunday for dawn prayers, the Middle East Eye reported today.

The government started to ease the lockdown restrictions after more than two months of lockdown and strict measures against the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

However,  the government enforced couple of strict measures including the mandatory social distance of two metres, wearing face masks, and limiting the opening of mosques to 15 minutes before the start of prayer and 10 minutes after its end.
