Dubai Lifts 24-Hour Movement Restrictions In Naif And Al Ras

The Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management eased restrictions on movement in Al Ras and Naif. Both areas record zero COVID-19 cases in the last two days. Restrictions on movement will continue to be in place between 10.00 pm and 6.00 am as with the rest of the emirate.

More than 6,000 tests were conducted among residents in the areas in less than a month. The achievement was the result of the combined efforts of all teams involved in the comprehensive sterilisation programme. The Committee thanked residents of both the areas for cooperating and adhering to the rules. This in turn, contributed to the efforts to combat the virus. The results also reflect the tireless hardworking of the frontline workers who worked around-the-clock to fight the pandemic.

The Covid-19 Command and Control Centre, Dubai Health Authority, Dubai Police, Dubai Civil Defense, Dubai Corporation for Ambulance Services, Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai, Dubai Municipality and Watani Al Emarat Foundation and other authorities worked together to safeguard the residents of both the areas.

Intensive sterilization operation and medical testing was carried out in both the areas. The tests were carried out by specialised DHA teams. Essential supplies were provided to residents of the areas during the period of restrictions in collaboration with a large number of volunteers who worked tirelessly to support the community.

Residents of both the districts expressed joy and celebrated the end of lockdown.
