It illuminates the need for residents to self-isolate during the Covid-19 pandemic…

Last night several of the capital’s architectural marvels were lit with a royal blue hue and the campaign slogan #STAYHOME.

The Capital Gate building, Khalifa University and the Four Seasons shone bright with the best advice you can heed right now: just stay home.

It’s to highlight the importance of isolation in order to control the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic. Authorities and experts are in absolutely no doubt about the efficacy of this practise.

The World Health Organisation’s (WHO) guidelines on social distancing have been echoed by our own leaders. HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai made an impassioned address to the nation on Twitter.

Other buildings in the UAE have been flying the flag of awareness too. Dubai’s Burj Khalifa was attired in the same important #STAYHOME message on Sunday, March 23.
