Eid Al Adha in UAE: Meet the frontliners keeping you safe during the holidays

Pakistani expat Dr Saba Iqbal Awan, who works as a general practitioner at Burjeel Hospital in Dubai, will be on a 12-hour shift on Tuesday starting at 9am.

This Eid Al Adha break, not everyone will be out on holidays: In fact, many Muslim frontliners are on call. Duty comes first, they said, especially at a time when the Covid-19 virus is still around.

Pakistani expat Dr Saba Iqbal Awan, who works as a general practitioner at Burjeel Hospital in Dubai, will be on a 12-hour shift on Tuesday starting at 9am. “Although I am working, I’ve decided that during my lunch hours, I’ll be ordering in a special meal to mark the day. It’s Eid, after all. I am a little envious of people who are off tomorrow,” Saba said with a laugh.
