Over 300,000 face masks and 853,000 free meals were also distributed among the residents.

A comprehensive screening and testing campaign in Abu Dhabi’s Al Dhafrah industrial areas has helped “fully contain the spread of Covid-19” among residents.

According to the Abu Dhabi Media Office, the campaign implemented by the Department of Health (DoH) covered the industrial areas of Madinat Zayed, Ghayathi, Al Marfa, Liwa and Al Sila. It “provided streamlined healthcare and support services to the residents”, the media office added.

More than 66,000 residents benefitted from free transportation, medical assessments and multi-language awareness programmes. Over 50 residential complexes were sanitised and 701 buildings screened as part of the programme. Over 300,000 face masks and 853,000 free meals were distributed among the residents.

Last week, the authorities announced that a six-week comprehensive testing campaign in Musaffah helped contain the spread of Covid-19 among the residents.
