The UAE has completed its national sterilisation programme and lifted movement restrictions effective Wednesday. This means residents can travel freely across the country any time of the day.
Earlier, they were required to stay home during the national sterilisation programme timings of 11pm to 6am in Dubai and 10pm to 6am in all other emirates.
Addressing a virtual Press briefing on Wednesday, Dr Saif Al Dhaheri, Spokesman for National Crisis & Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA), said: "The programme helped us sterlise public facilities like public transportation means, including the Dubai Metro. We will continue to sterilise all public facilities.
