Ahmed bin Mohammed Al Jarwan, President of the Council, praised the efforts of the World Health Organisation, WHO, and governments from around the world to contain the crisis, as well as the precautionary measures taken by the UAE, which are in line with the WHO’s instructions. "These measures include limiting gatherings, encouraging remote work, sterilising and disinfecting various facilities, and postponing events and conferences," he added.
