Authorities have urged members of the public to adhere to social distancing guidelines and follow the precautionary measures.
The Health Ministry said, “Wearing a mask for a long time does not cause a decrease in the percentage of oxygen inside the body, nor does it cause a toxic accumulation of carbon dioxide gas as long as the mask is properly used and allows normal breathing.”
The ministry said, “With the approach of Eid Al-Fitr, we call upon everyone to cooperate and adhere to procedures and avoid family visits and gatherings, and to limit them only to members of the same family who live in the same house, wear masks and adhere to physical distancing while sitting with the elderly and people with chronic diseases.”
Dr Omar Al Hammadi, the official spokesperson for the UAE Government said, “The vaccine is currently given to our first line defenders because they are more vulnerable to infection than others, and to the elderly and people with chronic diseases."
The measure aims to enhance precautionary measures as part of efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health.
