A host of new initiatives have been launched to ensure the supply of essential items in Abu Dhabi to help residents stay home amid the outbreak of COVID-19.
Abu Dhabi’s Department of Economic Development, in partnership with Department of Municipalities and Transport, the Integrated Transport Centre and Agthia Group, have introduced new measures to improve public safety.
Among the initiatives, community event spaces in the capital are set to be converted into temporary stores where the public can buy food and consumer goods.
