In its efforts to combat novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Dubai Financial Market-listed (DFM) Dubai Investments has rolled out preventive measures across its premises, with Dubai Investments Real Estate Company (DIRC) having dedicated one of its building in Dubai Investment Park (DIP) as a quarantine facility for its workers.

As part of the intiative, Dubai Investments — as a preliminary step — has implemented unified health requirements across all its labour camps.

All workers within the industrial units and construction sites are being regularly monitored to ensure safety and well-being to curb the spread of COVID-19 across the camps. 

Talking about the initiative, managing director and CEO of Dubai Investments, Khalid bin Kalban said: "Dubai Investments believes in contributing and playing a meaningful role in supporting this global situation with the COVID- 19 outbreak.

"As we join efforts to combat this, the health and safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority."

He added: "We are assessing and monitoring the situation closely on a weekly basis to ensure that the most ideal preventive measures are implemented to facilitate seamless operations without compromising on the health and the safety aspects.

According to Kalban, the groups's subsidiaries too have joined the initiative, with the company implementing "effective and timely steps supporting the UAE government initiatives".

Dubai Investments has also adopted remote working system, the UAE's state-held news agency, Wam, reported.
