DUBAI – The National Disinfection Programme has been extended until April 5, according to the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Ministry of Interior on Saturday (March 28).
According to authorities, sterilization of roads, public utilities and public transport will continue daily from 8pm until 6am the following day.
Restrictions in public movement and traffic movement during this period will continue. During this period, the public is urged to stay indoors as municipality teams disinfect roads, public utilities, bus stops, sidewalks, traffic lights, public transport and other facilities frequented by the public.
In Dubai, those who need to go out during this period for essential work, to go to the hospital or to buy food or medicine can apply for a permit on www.move.gov.ae.
The disinfection programme, which began at 8pm on Thursday, was initially scheduled to end on 6am on Sunday.
As part of the procedure, cleaning teams spray an anti-microbial protectant on surfaces that provides additional protection for 30 days.
Authorities said the products used in the sterilization drive ensure effective disinfection without causing any harm to people’s health, in compliance with the standards of the Municipality. ICA/Expat Media
