UAE authorities advise public to dispose shopping and delivery bags

-

UAE authorities have advised the public to immediately disposed plastic and shopping bags that come from outside their homes as traces of Covid-19 may still lurk on surfaces for an extended period of time if left disinfected.

“Studies indicate that the novel coronavirus may remain on surfaces for a few hours or even several days. this may vary depending on conditions, such as surface, temperature, and humidity. Therefore, we advise all individuals after shopping or when receiving bags from delivery services to dispose of used bags after emptying their contents in a closed container,” Dr. Farida Al Hosani said in one of the press conferences held this week.

Additionally, she also advised residents on the importance of sanitation and advised against reusing shopping and delivery bags.

“We also advised them to not reuse these bags and note the importance of sterilizing the surfaces where bags are placed at home, as well as washing hands with soap and water,” she added.
