How delivery works in Dubai

Delivery services in Dubai are through applications. The advantage of these is that the people who make the deliveries are under strict prevention measures.

Prevention measures in Dubai in coronavirus times include:

  • Mandatory use of face masks
  • Use of gloves in your hands
  • Keep the distance with the customer.
  • In most cases the bill is prepaid. Therefore you can leave the goods in the portal without the need for human interaction.

These rules are of paramount importance to be complied with by the various delivery services in Dubai.

Chen Singh expressed the following in an AFP interview

“Now, first we must disinfect ourselves, then we should go a good time. We ring a bell and leave the goods a metre from the door to be picked up.”

For this reason the work dynamics are not as fast as before. Although the important thing about all this is prevention to minimize the maximum number of infected.

Issa Jandir said the following regarding the importance of delivery service:

“If we don’t guarantee deliveries, everyone will come out and the coronavirus will become a big problem”

Undoubtedly this venture has taken on a major boom and it seems “that it came to stay”. This is because coronavirus is a vaccine-amerincy disease and does not yet exist.

It should be noted that in a number of countries they are researching to get a vaccine out as soon as possible. These countries include China, the United States, the United Kingdom and Germany.
