          <p>The Committee for the Management of Emergencies, Crises and Disasters caused by the Corona pandemic in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi approved the use of the “Al Hosn” application for green traffic as part of preventive measures to ensure safe entry, as reported by the Emirates News Agency.

This step came in accordance with the emirate’s strategy to combat the “Covid-19” pandemic, which is based on four basic and interrelated pillars that are the path to sustainable recovery, namely: vaccination, active investigation and examinations, safe entry, and the continued application of preventive measures.

The Emirati capital, Abu Dhabi, has adopted new precautionary measures to prevent the “Corona” virus, allowing restaurants and those with negative tests alone to enter commercial centers, food stores, restaurants, and others.

The decision will be implemented on June 15, and it includes centers and shops, gyms, hotels, beaches and public parks, private beaches and swimming pools, recreational centers, cinemas, museums, restaurants and cafes. The Emergency and Crisis Management Committee confirmed that these procedures are applied to those aged 16 years and over, and are considered complementary to the procedures currently adopted in the activities of vital sectors.

The green color will appear in the application if the owner of the phone has been vaccinated with two doses of one of the vaccines, but the person must also take a test for the “Corona” virus with a negative result to maintain the green color for 30 days, and then re-examine every month after that.

The green color will also appear in the application for those who did not receive the vaccine, but only for a period of three days from the date of conducting a negative test for the “Corona” virus, meaning that they will have to conduct a new examination every three days to frequent the centers mentioned in the decision.

The UAE has recorded about 589,000 cases of the virus, including 1,710 deaths, according to “Agence France Presse”. The UAE had warned in April that those who were not vaccinated would face restrictions on their movement. In May, Dubai said it would allow residents to attend sporting events and concerts if they were vaccinated. The UAE, which is running one of the fastest vaccination campaigns in the world, enforces strict rules on wearing masks and social distancing.
