Covid UAE: Maintain a social distance of '19 burgers' at DXB
Unique idea implemented at Dubai International Airport.
Maintaining a social distance of two metres is strictly in place across the UAE as part of Covid-19 safety regulations to help the public stay safe from the viral outbreak.
Airports in the country are strictly implementing Covid-19 safety guidelines, too, including wearing masks and maintaining social distance norms.
To ensure all travellers are safe at the UAE’s busiest airport and the people are maintaining a two-metre (m) distance, the Dubai International Airport (DXB) authorities have come up with a unique idea. They are measuring distances with burgers and coffee cups.
According to DXB, a two-metre distance is equivalent to 19 burgers, 12 coffee cups and 0.025 m of the world’s largest airport Airbus A380’s wingspan.
If you’re travelling through DXB, please remember to maintain a physical distance of at least two metres. That’s the equivalent of 19 burgers at Tranzeet, 12 Venti coffee cups at Starbucks or 0.025 of an Airbus A380 wingspan #DXBsafe pic.twitter.com/n8ru1CCmIF— Dubai International (@DXB) March 9, 2021
