The Federal Authority for Government Human Resources issued a memo to all ministries and federal entities setting the procedures and restrictions for dealing with the pandemic to be implemented. For example, all government employees as well as public service companies will be required to take a PCR test every week if they have not received two doses of the vaccine. As part of its national campaign to vaccinate 50% of the population by April, the UAE said it has vaccinated 1.972 million people already, with almost 90,000 in the last 24 hours.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) held a series of webinars across various Dubai government entities to raise awareness about the importance of the COVID-19 vaccine in order to save lives and citizens. Dr. Hend Al Awadhi, Head of the Health Promotion & Education Section at the DHA said that webinar section is divided into three sections. The first focuses on what you need to know before getting vaccinated, all the information and its effects, while the second is mainly about how the vaccine is given and its doses, and the final section of the webinar is about the after-effect of the vaccine.
As a result of the number of cases and deaths, Dubai has announced inspection campaigns and said it closed down 18 businesses and issued 18 fines and 45 warnings to others for failing to adhere to anti-COVID-19 measures.
