Sterilization Programme in Action - Coming Soon in UAE
26 March 2020

To fight the spread of the COVID-19, UAE authorities stated the implementation of the sterilization drive starting at 08:00 PM this Thursday.

Media reports that residents have to stay indoors from 08:00 PM on Thursday, March 26 to 06:00 AM on Sunday, March 29. As during this time all public places, government departments and the streets across the country, all public transport are being disinfected.

The 3-days sterilization will strictly limit residents’ movement and forbid them to leave homes except to buy food, necessities or medicines. Only workers from energy, telecommunications, public media, health, security and police sectors may leave their homes but they will be asked to show work permits.

Throughout the sterilization period, traffic and public movement will be restricted, and public transport and metro services suspended. Farida Al Hosani, an official spokesperson for the UAE health sector, urged the public to avoid gatherings of family and friends while services carry out a program of sanitation.

In the case of violating given directives, there will be deterrent measures undertaken including fines and imprisonment against those who don’t comply with the national sterilization program instructions. People are strongly recommended to stay at home during these three days aimed at the combat of COVID-19.
