EDE Scanners To Be Used at Entry Points To Abu Dhabi Emirate

by Out and About Mag.

Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee has updated the procedure for entering the Abu Dhabi emirate from within the UAE, effective Sunday, 19 December 2021. The committee has approved the use of EDE scanners at entry points.

The decision comes as a precautionary measure to help maintain the low COVID-19 infection rate of 0.05 per cent of total tests in Abu Dhabi emirate. EDE scanners use advanced technology to rapidly detect potential COVID-19 cases without storing personal information.

Any potential positive COVID-19 cases detected will be referred to an on-site testing centre, where they will be given a free antigen test, with results issued within 20 minutes.

Abu Dhabi’s low infection rate has been successfully achieved through the ongoing implementation of preventive and precautionary measures, including continuous testing and contact tracing, use of the green pass system to access public places and events, and high vaccination rates.
