The organising team of the Expo 2020 Dubai world exhibition in conjunction with the United Arab Emirates are closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation as they continue to prepare for the global event. This was said by the organisers in a statement released last week.

“Alongside the government of the UAE, we are working hard to adapt to unfolding events surrounding the spread of COVID-19. The health and well-being of everyone involved in Expo 2020 and everyone living in and visiting the UAE is our top priority and will not be compromised. Like many governments around the world, the UAE authorities have taken a range of robust, precautionary measures to contain the spread of the virus,” read part of the statement.

The organisers stressed that the safety of all their staff members involved in the planning of the event would be prioritised.

“In common with other organisations, Expo 2020 Dubai is closely monitoring ongoing developments and taking all sensible precautions to manage and mitigate the risk to all those involved in the Expo. We will be diligently following the latest guidance from the Dubai Health Authority, (the) Ministry of Health and Prevention, and (the) World Health Organization, as we work closely with the International Bureau of Expositions in Paris and other relevant bodies as the situation around the world evolve,” said the organizers on the statement.

The organisers highlighted that they were consulting closely with all the 192 participating countries and that they would continue to provide them with tangible, meaningful support.

Expo 2020 Dubai is the 2020/1 edition of a six-month long global expo, which is held every five years. This year’s edition of the event is set to be held from 20 October 2020 to 10 Apr 2021. The government of Zimbabwe through the Office of President and Cabinet last year indicted that it intended to participate in the exhibition and has been preparing for the mega show.
