Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed visited people who were hurt in a gas explosion in Abu Dhabi, on Tuesday.
The member of the Executive Council and chairman of Abu Dhabi Executive Office visited Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City and wished the injured a rapid recovery.
He also directed Abu Dhabi's Department of Community Development to attend to the patients and ensure their full recovery.
Three people died as a result of the explosion at a building on Sheikh Rashid bin Saeed Road – known locally as Airport Road – on August 31.
Investigations showed the explosion was caused by a misalignment in the gas container fittings after the residential building was refuelled.
The blast instantly killed two Filipino people and fatally injured another from Sri Lanka. The blast also destroyed a KFC, neighbouring Hardee's and other shops near by.
The Sri Lankan Embassy in the UAE said visited another of its citizens, injured in the explosion, in the intensive care unit of a hospital.
Police reminded the public to be careful when dealing with gas connections and other energy sources.
On Tuesday, Sheikh Khaled instructed Abu Dhabi's government offices to review safety and security requirements for buildings’ gas transportation and storage and to update them in line with best international practice to ensure the community's safety.
Following the explosion, Emirates Red Crescent said it would cover the cost of accommodation of more than 200 people who were left temporarily homeless.
The humanitarian organisation will provide support for 208 people living in the building who had to be relocated.
ERC said volunteers from its Abu Dhabi centre were involved in the evacuation of the building and transferring residents to hotels in the city.
