The Emirate of Sharjah continued its sterilisation operations throughout the Emirate as part of the national sterilisation programme against the Covid-19 virus, in cooperation with the Sharjah Municipality, Sharjah Police, Sharjah Civil Defence and Beeah, the flagship environment company of the Emirate.
As many as 300 mechanism have been deployed as part of the Emirate’s sterilisation campaign, with a force of more than 500 workers taking part in the drive, sanitising all major streets and commercial, industrial and residential areas in the various regions of the Emirate.
Sharjah's sterilisation operations are strongly supported by Bee'ah’s use of the latest environmentally-friendly and sustainable disinfection methods, spraying the air, ground and surfaces from a height of 40 to 50 metres, as protective measures against the global pandemic.
During the sterilisation campaign, people in the Emirate presented a united front with both the citizens and residents, offering full solidarity with the authorities’ efforts and observing the government instructions to stay home to confront the threat of Covid-19.
The roads across the Emirate wore a deserted look during the sterilisation with shops and malls being closed. Both citizens and expatriates thanked and lauded the efforts by the authorities to combat the disease and protect the safety and wellbeing of the residents. Many of them stood on the balconies of their apartments to greet and thank the teams engaged in sterilisation operations and express their love and support for the UAE.

The authorities reaffirmed their commitment and dedication in the war on the global pandemic and limit its spread through the ongoing nightly sterilisation and disinfection campaigns. They called on all UAE residents to stay in their homes for their own safety and support the country’s efforts against this challenge.
