Dubai’s Will Continue Its 24-hour Sterilisation Programme For Another Week


In a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19, Dubai has been under 24-hour lock down since April 4, whilst the city undergoes an extensive 24-hour sterilization programme. Now, the restrictions have officially been extended for at least another week.

A post on Dubai Media Office’s official Twitter account on April 17 states that, “The Supreme Committee for Crisis & Disaster Management in Dubai announces the extension of the 24-hour National Sterilization Program for a further week, in light of the success achieved by the initiative, in place since April 4, in controlling the spread of COVID-19 in Dubai.”
