Not a single COVID-19 case at abattoirs: Official Jul 31, 2020 0 13822 12345 Satyendra PathakDohaAbattoirs in Qatar have not registered a single coronavirus (COVID-19) case since the outbreak of the pandemic in the country almost five months ago, thanks to strict implementation of precautionary measures, a senior municipality official has said.“All workers and veterinarians are safe as high levels of precautionary measures have ensured that there is no outbreak of COVID-19 at any of the abattoirs in the country,” Al Rayyan Municipality Health Control Section Head Majed Burhan Al Zaidan told Qatar Tribune.The Ministry of Municipality and Environment (MME) in cooperation with Widam Food Company has implemented several mechanisms to inspect abattoirs on a regular basis, he said.“We are very strict in our approach and taking no chance to ensure that all the people working at abattoirs follow the guidelines issued by the ministry,” he said. As a precautionary measure to further ensure that abattoirs are completely safe to receive visitors during the Eid Al Adha festivities beginning on Friday, Zaidan said, all the facilities, staff and veterinarians have been inspected by health professionals and found to be in good condition to cater to customers. “The workers and veterinarians will also be examined on a regular basis to ensure that they are in good health before they enter the premises,” he said. Special drives have also been launched to disinfect all the facilities and ensure that sacrificial animals are in good health, he said, adding that arrangements have been made to ensure that there is no rush of people at any of the abattoirs in the country.“The process is such that one can choose a sacrificial animal and take the delivery of the meat while sitting in his/her car. This will ensure that people do not come in close proximity with each other at any of the slaughterhouses,” he said.
