According to an announcement by Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing, all tour operators, hotel facilities, floating restaurants, venues, and event organizers remain closed. If according to a previously issued circular, the activity of such places was to resume on April 14, now the ban expiration date is not announced. If earlier a two-week extension was expected, now the phrase “until further notice” is officially used.
Dubai authorities continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis for subsequent decisions and take all measures to reduce public health and safety risks. Now in UAE, a National Disinfection Program is underway – in this regard, community members must stay at home. Leaving the house is allowed only if it is necessary to go for food, medicine, to visit a doctor or if the work is related to vital sectors.
Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2, also known as COVID-19) is a new strain of coronavirus which is causing illness in humans and animals. Most people infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus will feel mild to moderate respiratory illness and recover without any special treatment. Older people, as well as those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, chronic respiratory disease, cancer or diabetes, are more likely to develop serious illness, and require immediate assistance. Novel Coronavirus was first identified in a cluster with pneumonia symptoms in Wuhan city, Hubei province of China, quickly spreading around the world. On early March 2020, the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic had officially started, becoming the defining global health crisis of our time. Today, it is the greatest challenge people have faced since World War II, worsened by subsequent lockdowns of whole countries, collapse of entire industries, and a major economic recession.
