We will also follow the lives of home-schooled children and their parents during the time, the highs and lows of the business community as Dubai (and the rest of the world) tackled the crisis.

Her Excellency Mona Al Marri, Director-General of the Government of Dubai Media Office said, ‘We are pleased to collaborate with Discovery to share Dubai’s remarkable journey and proactive approach in combating the Covid-19 pandemic. From the very onset of the pandemic, Dubai set an example for the world in responding swiftly and effectively to protect lives and livelihoods and limiting Covid-19’s impact on the society and economy.’
He added ‘Through each episode, the documentary depicts the resilience of the emirate and its community, and showcases how each and every member of society has been part of the story of Dubai’s success in overcoming the crisis.’
Lee Hobbs, Senior Vice President of Pay TV, Global Brands and discovery+ for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Warner Bros. Discovery, said, ‘The world’s battle against Covid-19 has been relentless, with efforts continuously evolving as time goes on. Dubai has been unique in its approach, facing the pandemic head-on and being amongst the first in the world to undergo an extensive vaccination programme. The documentary celebrates the heroes of the pandemic, from those on the frontline to the family heroes who took on homeschooling and caring for others.’
