Otherwise it could lead to further spread of COVID-19

UAE residents are being urged to make sure they are disposing of face masks and gloves in the proper way. 

Official spokesperson for the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention, Dr Farida Al Hosani has said that residents throwing them on the ground could contribute to the spread of COVID-19. 

She said leaving them on the ground is not only littering, but could spread when cleaners are picking up the rubbish. 

All residents are urged to dispose of all litter properly, in bins.
