Covid 19: UAE Kicks Off 11-Day Sterilisation Drive

Amidst COVID-19 outbreak, Curly Tales encourages you to stay indoors. We take you around the world from the comfort of your home. #SpreadPositivity #ArmchairTravel

With the massive issue of the Corona outbreak, Dubai has taken some serious measures. A huge 11 day disinfection campaign has been announced in the city. Having already begun on Friday, this 11 day sterilisation drive, will be cleaning around 95 densely populated streets in Dubai. The campaign will focus on roads, interior lanes, and many suburban streets.

This is a colossal attempt to try and contain the spread of this novel virus, which has already affected 140 people in the UAE. So far, the country has 107 ongoing active cases, 31 recoveries, and 2 unfortunate deaths. The authorities in Dubai, have been constantly reassuring the citizens, of the safety measures in the country. The Ministry of health and prevention have urged all individuals to maintain social distancing in order to curb the spread of the virus.

With this new campaign, all residents are asked to keep off the streets, and to steer away from any disinfection worksites. The sanitisation will be done using large disinfectant spray machines, that will be mounted on top of trucks and cars. A professional team will then use a steam cleaning machine, a fogging machine and a disinfectant sprayer compressed machine to sterilise the area. This entire 11 day campaign will be conducted by the Dubai Municipality.
