UAE officials urge children over the age of three to wear the mask

Abu Dhabi: A UAE health spokesman has warned children over the age of three to wear masks to protect themselves from the Kovid virus. Fareeda al-Husseini said. Attending a discussion organized by the UAE Ministry of Justice, she suggested that children under the age of three should wear a face shield.

Avoid taking children to busy places like playgrounds. To ensure health safety, everyone should wear approved face masks. Fareeda said. UAE officials have previously said that children with serious illnesses, including respiratory problems, should not wear masks. Discounts are also available for children who refuse to wear masks due to discomfort and remove them.
