COVID-19 in the UAE

Since marking the end of the National Sterilization Program, authorities have seen an increase in violators who are flouting the guidelines, mainly, not observing social distancing, not wearing masks and holding gatherings.

And so, fines have gone up.

At last night’s media briefing, people were reminded that the return to normal is not danger-free and that there is ‘serious concern that the violations from irresponsible individuals’ will undo ALL the success of the last few months.
