Abu Dhabi Police Issue Move Permits For Residents

The Abu Dhabi Police have issued move permits during the National Disinfection Programme. The permits are provided during the National Disinfection Programme via their website, www.adpolice.gov.ae. The move comes as an initiative to affirm the importance of adhering to the duration of the permit in order to avoid violation.

What’s In It?

According to the new rule, those going out for absolute necessity, including visiting hospital or pharmacy, or buying essential needs, and don’t have move permits during the Programme timing, have to provide an evidence on the reasoning behind their emergency.

Employees belonging to the vital sector do not have to abide by the National Disinfection Programme timings due to the nature of their work. However, they have to provide the National Crisis & Emergency Management Authority with lists of the names of these employees and their car plate numbers in order to exempt them automatically from the fines’ system.

Filing an objection is available via www.adpolice.gov.ae within 15 days from the date of fine.

Here’s how to apply for the permit:

What Else?

After Dubai Metro used Orange Robots for cleaning, Abu Dhabi airport follows suit. Abu Dhabi airport now has unmanned vehicles that will sterilize the place. The CodiBot is designed by Marakeb Technologies, and will sterilize the airport starting this month. The robot will clean the staff areas, cargo facilities, and cabin sterilisation with minimized human interaction.

The CodiBot is fully equipped with remote control facility, a real-time video and high-speed 4G data connection. The robot has three main functions:

-Targeting of virus strains on surfaces with controlled bursts of germicidal UV rays
-Screening of individual through thermal infrared monitoring
-Disinfection of areas using liquid cleaning agents

Shareef Hashim Al Hashmi, CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports said: “We can reassure passengers and our frontline staff that we are taking all precautionary measures to ensure their safety. We have a clear responsibility to ensure our spaces remain clear of any virus threat. By deploying artificial intelligence, we add another layer of protection and build on our comprehensive response to the Covid-19 outbreak.”
