Residents in Abu Dhabi caught a glimpse of the UAE flag hovering over buildings and skyscrapers with an important message about staying under quarantine.
Abu Dhabi Aviation wows residents with quarantine awareness banner in the air
Think twice before heading out of home if you live in Abu Dhabi, because the capital is taking strict measures to ensure residents stay under quarantine. As if police cars patrolling the roads and policemen keeping an eye on pedestrians on the streets isn’t enough to make people stay indoors, Abu Dhabi Aviation deployed a helicopter soaring the skies wiith a massive banner overhead featuring the UAE flag followed by the message, “Dedication at Work and Safety at Home.” Check it out:
It’s worth mentioning the UAE takes immense pride of the National flag. Last December, the nation claimed a record for the “largest flag flown in free fall,” with Dubai Crown Prince His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum sharing an astonishing video of the adrenaline-fueled leap, measuring a whopping 144.28 m², just in time for the 48th National Day.
Banner message in the wake of Coronavirus
It goes without saying that Abu Dhabi Aviation’s banner message goes in line with government directives advising residents to stay at home and contain the spread of Coronavirus, responsible for 22 deaths in the UAE. The capital is taking numerous efforts to combat the spread of the pandemic, including the opening of five drive-thru testing centres across the emirate.
387 new Coronavirus cases in the UAE
Latest updates by the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) confirm 387 new cases and two deaths in the UAE, totalling up to 4,123 cases and 22 deaths. On the brighter side, 680 patients have recovered from the pandemic.
