Dubai’s Burj Khalifa displays ‘Stay Home’ message amid CoVID-19 spread

Staying at home shouldn’t be a choice, it should be a necessary demand for the public.

With the upsurge of the positive cases of COVID-19 around the globe, the only way to straighten the curb is to stay at home. The government has been strengthening their campaigns to encourage the public to stay in their respective homes and some private companies have also done the same.

One good example is the world’s tallest skyscraper, Burj Khalifa. The skyscraper encouraged the residents of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by litting up the skscyraper with the message “STAY HOME” flashed in different languages.

On March 23, not only the residents of UAE were inspired to stay in their humble abodes, but also the people who have seen the photos circulating online. Hence, if you just learned of this now, it’s high time that you take staying at home on a serious note.

Prince of Dubai, Hh Sheikh bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, has issued a message for the people in the UAE, saying:

“The only way to guarantee that we safeguard the well-being of our loved ones is to act now, together and without exceptions. Stay Home. Social Distancing is NOT a matter of choice. it is a critical DEMAND from every one of us, in order for our city and our society to remain safe.”

We’re hoping that as Cebuanos, we will also be inspired to take a cue on this step to always STAY AT HOME unless we have important business to attend to. Let us help our frontliners combat this pandemic. Let’s make their jobs a little bit easier. We can do this. We know we can.
