A massive awareness campaign using drones to educate Sharjah residents on how to fight the coronavirus outbreak is laudable (“Sharjah launches massive awareness campaign using drones to fight COVID-19 outbreak,” Feb.20, Gulf Today website).

The local emergency crises and disaster team in Sharjah, in cooperation with the Air Wing Department of the General Directorate of Security Support at the Ministry of Interior, has launched a large-scale campaign to raise health awareness among community members against COVID-19.

The campaign includes broadcasting direct awareness messages through police patrols and drones, in addition to conducting air patrols to monitor compliance with preventive and precautionary measures, to limit the spread of the emerging COVID-19, and preserve the health and safety of society.

According to the reports half of the United Arab Emirates’ population have been vaccinated, and the country is eyeing to vaccinate the remaining people in a couple of months, which is good news for everyone.  Every life is a precious life. People should pay attention to the government’s advisory and get vaccinated as soon as possible.

It is also important to follow the coronavirus standard operating procedure even after getting COVID-19 vaccination.
