The UAE has taken several steps to contain the Covid-19 outbreak.

The virtual meeting was carried out as a preventive measure to protect everyone from the Covid-19 coronavirus.

The UAE has taken several steps to contain the disease, including a sanitisation across roads, virtual learning across schools, remote working for government departments, and shutting down of cinema halls and other such locations where people gather in large numbers.
