Sharjah Police starts a campaign to raise awareness about COVID-19 virus among the residents through their patrols across the emirate.
Sharjah Police tweeted a video which shows message in which the announcement is made via radio waves and speakers that residents should follow precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The Police asks public to abide by the rules to prevent coronavirus, as every resident is an important part of the community.
“Please follow preventive measures for your safety and those around you,” the authorities announce.
Sharjah residents are advised not to deal with or approach beggars in any way, as communication with or physically touching them could expose their health and safety to risk.
The Ministry stressed in a statement on Saturday that, its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The campaign was launched at noon on Friday, using police patrols and drones broadcasting through loudspeakers. They covered 35 sites including industrial zones and mosque courtyards "before and after the Friday prayers," in addition to conducting patrols in different areas to reach all members of society.
The Programme focuses on advancing research and development (R&D) in five main areas in the sector – Production and Manufacturing; Consumer Services and Tourism; Healthcare and Connected Mobility; and Logistics.
Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has awarded contracts for constructing three all-inclusive Truck Rest Stops in partnership with the private sector. The first contract was made with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), and two contracts with Almutakamela Vehicle Testing and Registration.
Sheikh Mohammed also tweeted, “The ‘The Most Beautiful Winter in the World” campaign, which we launch annually, achieved an increase in domestic tourism by 36% in 2021, reaching 1.3 million domestic tourists. Its people... and this year's motto is "Our heritage"... to spread the values of the most beautiful people.
