18 Aug Working responsibly to prioritise health and safety in a new reality
Despite being posed with a health crisis that shook the world to its very core, Dubai emerged with an indomitable resilience and handled the COVID-19 outbreak within the city in an exceptionally commendable manner. While the UAE government has launched numerous stimulus packages and fee exemptions in an effort to stabilize the economy, the most notable step taken was the introduction of the National Disinfection Program along with administering more than half a million COVID-19 tests and setting up the largest COVID-19 detection and testing laboratory.
We are happy to see Dubai bounce back to what can only be seen as the ‘new normal’ with strict safety measures in place. Following strict lockdowns that were implemented, the city has now lifted most restrictions while strongly emphasizing that people take necessary precautions to protect themselves and everyone they come in contact with. Dubai’s quick and effective response to the pandemic also received praise from the World Health Organization (WHO), for the city’s timely and effective response to the COVID outbreak.
Whilst we have no doubt made great progress across the UAE, the alarming spike in the number of cases reported in the last few days means that we can’t let our guard down. We need to continue to be vigilant about safety and hygiene – particularly in our own homes. Here at We Will Fix It we are continuing to govern the strict protocols within our own business and monitor relevant insights to ensure we are evolving our standards and keeping abreast new information.
Please do not hesitate to contact our team to discuss how we can ensure your safety whilst still getting the work done.
“Safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our land, people, and all those who make the UAE their home is our responsibility. The UAE has taken early measures to limit the spread of the virus. Our precautions are regularly upgraded and we continuously monitor the experiences of other countries in combating the virus.”
– Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi
