Jaber pointed to the role of the laboratories and research sector in filling and preparing ethyl alcohol sprays with a concentration of 70% and distributing them to workers, in addition to the role of crisis management in implementing preventive measures to coexist with Corona by pasting guide signs to regulate the standing and sitting of the public arriving at branches and customer service outlets to adhere to the rules of social distancing. In addition, the Awareness Department educates workers about the repercussions of the spread of the virus and means of prevention and protection from exposure to any infection.

The head of the Alexandria Drinking Water Company directed the General Administration of Occupational Safety and Health, in cooperation with the General Administration of Security, to follow up on the implementation of all procedures as required at the level of the company’s headquarters, monitor disinfection work on a periodic basis, and detect any infected cases and deal with them immediately to enhance the company’s means of protection.
