The Abu Dhabi Crowds Pic Was Taken Days Before Malls Reopened To The Public

An image widely shared on social media showing a swarm of people gathering at the entrance of a mall in Abu Dhabi was criticised for a lack of social distancing.

The photo went viral on Friday, the day some malls reopened, prompting people to believe this was the situation on day 1 of malls being back in business. However, it has since been revealed the pic was actually snapped on Wednesday, April 29, and shows employees at the mall entrance.

Local reports state the crowd was cleared up shortly after.
