Dear MEL Topic Readers,

In pictures: Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr amid coronavirus

Eid al-Fitr, or Festival of Breaking the Fast (Ramadan), is an Islamic holiday to mark the end of Ramadan, a month-long, dawn-to-sunset fasting. Usually, it is a three-day fest of gift-giving and gorge on special meals with loved ones, neighbors, and friends. However, under the coronavirus pandemic, such mass-gatherings and close interactions can not be held in a usual manner. Worshippers are checked their temperatures before worshipping, required to wear Personal Protective Equipment, or PPE, such as a face mask, face cover and protective gloves, and maintain social distancing in the mosque.

The number of Muslims around the world is about 1.8 billion, nearly one in every four humans on Earth. Also, in countries like Turkey and Iran, where coronavirus has infected and killed many, nearly all the citizens are Muslims. How can they prevent the novel virus from spreading during the festive time? Only time will tell.

Enjoy seeing the photos of this annual religious event under a
