Block 26 to be targeted following successful completion of phase one of programme involving 4 blocks.

The second phase of the sanitisation programme and Covid-19 testing in the Musaffah area of Abu Dhabi will begin on Saturday night with block 26.

The programme is being implemented by the Department of Health - Abu Dhabi in partnership with relevant entities.

Daily commercial activities will continue as usual. Entry and exit will be restricted while the area is being sanitised.

No legal action will be taken against those violating visa regulations. Protecting the community's safety and curbing the spread of coronavirus is the top priority, Abu Dhabi Media Office said.

Those living in the targeted block are requested to cooperate and follow instructions in order for the sanitisation and testing programme to achieve its objectives.

This follows a successful first phase of the campaign, which included 4 blocks in Musaffah, which was launched on May 9 and has gone seamlessly, according to Abu Dhabi Media Office.

It said the Musaffah Testing Centre is receiving 2,500-3,000 workers daily from 12 different nationalities, through 50 to 70 daily bus trips.

The centre conducts 1,500-1,800 Covid-19 tests every day.

Testing and sanitisation were welcomed by residents, who praised the seamless procedures and facilities made available.

They also expressed their thanks for the efforts being made to protect their health and safety.
