Residents in Abu Dhabi have been urged to opt for home deliveries when ordering meat for Eid-al-Adha to avoid a rush at abattoirs amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Abu Dhabi City Municipality said slaughterhouses in the capital were expecting to receive up to 25,000 orders for livestock over the coming weeks.
To align with social distancing measures, customers can place their orders using two dedicated mobile applications, My Slaughter and Al Jazeera Slaughters.
Eid Al Adha is expected to fall at the end of July but the exact date is yet to be confirmed.
Khalfan Al Muhairbi, section head of Abu Dhabi Slaughterhouses, said customers should take advantage of the contactless payment and order options to limit the spread of Covid-19.
Residents can also opt to collect their meat orders from the drive-through centres after placing an order online or through the app.
He said strict precautionary and hygiene measures have been stepped up at abattoirs across the city under the supervision of a professional veterinary team.
The fee for slaughtering animals remains unchanged.
For a goat or sheep, customers will pay Dh15. That amount increases to Dh40 for a calf or young camel and Dh60 for a full-grown cow or camel.
During Ramadan and Eid-al-Fitr earlier this year, the municipality said 59,809 different types of livestock were slaughtered.
