Catholic church in Dubai installs hand sanitizers instead of holy water


Instead of installing holy water, a catholic church in Dubai has installed multiple hand sanitizer dispensers in the church’s hallways to prevent parishioners from getting coronavirus.

In a post shared by Rachel U. Salinel, a Filipino media practitioner in Dubai, she posted a woman using a hand sanitizer in St. Francis Church in Jebel Ali.

She wrote: “Instead of holy water dipping when entering the church hand sanitizer na muna sa St. Francis Church. #notoCovid19.”

Health professionals across the world are urging everyone to do the proper hand-washing as it prevents viruses such as the novel coronavirus.

Hand sanitizers contain at least 60% alcohol and can be an alternative if soap and water aren’t available.
