Health experts disinfect a pavement in Sharjah.
As countries, cities and communities tackle one of the greatest health challenges of our time, a lot of heroes are emerging risking their safety for the public's benefit.
The Sharjah Police and Sharjah City Municipality continued their efforts to ensure a healthy environment for all community members by taking preventive and precautionary measures to contain the spread of the Covid19 pandemic.
In this context the municipality continued its operations to disinfect the streets, walkways, tunnels and all areas of Sharjah, using high-quality sterilising materials and equipment. It has deployed qualified personnel to run these operations.
Sharjah Police participated in these operations by deploying their patrolling vehicles and personnel to ensure the safety of community members.
The Sharjah Environment Company "Beeah" also supported the sterilising operations by providing equipment. The sterilising efforts will continue to contain the spread of infection.
Beeah’s committed workforce continues to provide essential services keeping our cities clean, collecting our waste and disinfecting public areas. Their efforts keep communities safe and healthy for all. We pay tribute to these heroes, and encourage you to join in leaving them messages of appreciation.
Beeah said, “Prioritising public health and safety, we have been disinfecting and sanitising all public and large residential waste and recycling bins and public benches.
“Our fleet of 1,200 vehicles for waste collection and city cleaning have also undergone thorough disinfecting and are equipped with hand sanitisers. As Bee’ah strives to promote better quality of life, we aim to create a safer, cleaner environment for the communities we serve.”
The UAE surpassed developed countries, such as Singapore, Canada, Norway, Finland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
