Coronavirus: UAE to fly home all overseas students

Authorities will repatriate all students within 48 hours, it was revealed on Monday evening

The UAE is to fly home all Emirati students based overseas within 48 hours.

The move is being led by the Ministry of Education and the National Authority for Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Management as part of precautionary measures after the coronavirus outbreak.

The operation is being conducted with the support of embassies in concerned countries, Abu Dhabui Media Office said on Twitter.

Countries across the globe are tightening travel restrictions to try to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Last week, The National revealed that Emiratis and expatriates studying abroad had begun to return home because of the outbreak.

The ministry and authority had earlier advised students abroad to immediately return to the UAE if their school campuses were shut or the country called for Emiratis to return.

Authorities said returning students should undergo distance learning online from the UAE “for a temporary period, or up until the end of the current semester or academic year”.

The authorities said Emirati students who returned were not to travel again “under any circumstances".

Thousands of international students who call the UAE home have already left courses mid-semester as campuses closed in the US, UK and Europe.

The design

The protective shell is covered in solar panels to make use of light and produce energy. This will drastically reduce energy loss.

More than 80 per cent of the energy consumed by the French pavilion will be produced by the sun.

The architecture will control light sources to provide a highly insulated and airtight building.

The forecourt is protected from the sun and the plants will refresh the inner spaces.

A micro water treatment plant will recycle used water to supply the irrigation for the plants and to flush the toilets. This will reduce the pavilion’s need for fresh water by 30 per cent.

Energy-saving equipment will be used for all lighting and projections.

Beyond its use for the expo, the pavilion will be easy to dismantle and reuse the material.

Some elements of the metal frame can be prefabricated in a factory.

 From architects to sound technicians and construction companies, a group of experts from 10 companies have created the pavilion.

Work will begin in May; the first stone will be laid in Dubai in the second quarter of 2019. 

Construction of the pavilion will take 17 months from May 2019 to September 2020.
