UAE sterilisation programme: disinfectants are harmless to humans and animals
Disinfectants used to spray roads across the country during this weekend’s sterilisation programme are non-toxic and safe for humans and animals, officials have said.
The country declared a nationwide cleaning campaign that started on March 26, in an effort to curb the spread of the virus.
The National Sterilisation Programme, which was launched by the Ministry of Health and Prevention and the Ministry of Interior, will continue between 8pm and 6am, until April 4.
The Emirates asked everyone to stay indoors during the campaign.
More than a thousand sanitisation workers sprayed streets, bus stops and footbridges with disinfectant on Friday night in Abu Dhabi.
