Celebrations follow Kovid restrictions
Organizers at the Dubai Expo yesterday decided to tighten precautionary measures to curb the spread of omicron, despite a small increase in the spread of covid in the country. As part of this, the number of PCR testing centers at the Expo venue has been increased to four. These will provide free PCR testing facilities to the entire staff of the Expo and to the staff of the pavilions in different countries.
The organizers also decided to suspend some of the events at the Expo to prevent the spread of Omikron. Parades and entertainment programs by rowing entertainers, in which artists are more likely to interact with the public, have been temporarily canceled. The goal is to reduce the risk of covid spreads by interacting more with people.
