On Friday, Dubai extended its 24-hour-stay at home initiative in order to curb the spread of Covid 19. Officials have also put a cap on the number of trips residents can make to buy groceries. The new update in the system will now allow residents to obtain a permit every three days. Residents can get a permit every three days to get groceries and every five days for cash withdrawals.

What Else?

Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, opened a field hospital at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Dubai Media office shared a whole lot of pictures on Twitter and clearly HH Hamdan is seen adhering to the Covid rules. During the inauguration, Sheikh Hamdan is seen wearing a mask and gloves.

The huge halls of Dubai World Trade Centre have been transformed into the Middle East’s largest hospital. The centre accommodates 3000 beds, including 800 intensive care beds. The move is part of UAE’s efforts to increase the number of beds to handle Covid patients.

Speaking of the initiative, Humaid Al Qatami, director general of Dubai Health Authority, said the emirate has plans in place for all scenarios. He also added that the authorities were equipped to help more than 10,000 patients. “We will have more than two field hospitals ready in Dubai in the coming days to be ready for any situation,” Al-Outami said.
