Online Shopping for Eid of 2020 in Dubai
After the exasperating and demanding year we’ve had, Eid provides the much needed distraction from all the distressing events happening around us. 28th of July marks the prosperous occasion of Eid al-Adha this year. Being one of the most significant and religious event in the Islamic calendar, individuals commence their day with prayers, by visiting mosques and sharing with the less fortunate.
When living in an Arab country like the U.A.E., we get to witness the excitement and anticipation of our friends, family or colleagues in the days approaching the festival. People celebrate this special day by dressing up in their finest attire and by spending quality time with family and friends. One can only expect an increase in the enthusiasm with which people are looking forward to celebrate this joyous occasion this year. The Covid-19 pandemic compelled many of us to be isolated away from our relatives, as we observed social distancing and lockdowns for safety reasons. While Dubai has lifted its lockdown restrictions, the residents are advised to follow strict precautionary measures to protect themselves and others.
This makes Eid of 2020, during covid, different from that of the previous years. The fear of being infected by the virus could cause a limitation in the amount of time people spend on shopping. Not only do individuals dress their best but they also give gifts to commemorate this jubilant affair. So how can we manage Eid shopping in 2020? Many companies have taken the online platform to promote the sales of their products and to make it more convenient for the customers. But is it safe to be shopping online during the Covid pandemic? Yes it is, here’s what the leading health organisations had to say on the matter:
The Centre of Disease Control stated that “There is likely very low risk of spread from products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient temperatures.”
The World Health Organisation reinforced this statement by saying “The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low.”
