Dubai Bets On Speedy Vaccine Rollout to Keep Expo 2020 on Track

Pin It

Dubai is hoping one of the world’s fastest vaccination programs and rapid testing technology will help achieve its goal of holding the Expo 2020 event this year, after the coronavirus pandemic forced a delay. The government is confident inoculation programs will be successful enough to open the Expo on Oct. 1 and says it’s still possible that 25 million people will visit the city for the six-month event. The Expo, which Dubai has been preparing for a decade, is meant to be one of the biggest events globally this year and generate billions of dollars for the government. The resurgence of the virus in recent months has complicated the planning and led to questions about whether it will have to be downsized.
