The authorities urged public to avoid social gatherings and follow social distancing guidelines.

The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday reported 390 new cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 80 recoveries. Three deaths were also reported.

The ministry has urged the public to cooperate and stick to the Covid-19 precautionary measures outlined by the UAE government. The ministry attributed the  recent surge in daily Covid infections to some people’s disregard for important preventive measures such as wearing medical masks and social distancing, the ministry said. Adhering to precautionary measures against Covid-19 is a national responsibility, the authorities have warned.

While the elderly and other vulnerable groups are more prone to contracting the virus due to weaker immunity, the youth are affected due to a misconception. It has been noticed that the 20 to 40 age group is the most affected in the UAE due to the wrong perception that their youth will protect them from being infected.

On Friday, a top official had said that new penalties and violations may be introduced to stop the spread of Covid-19. Salem Al Zaabi, acting chief prosecutor of the Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee at the Public Prosecution, said that introduction of new violations would depend on the circumstances and how urgently they are needed.

He pointed out that the achievements accomplished so far have been tough. “We hope to retain those achievements. We should all comply with the safety rules – if we want the wheel of economy to keep going, our children to go back to schools, if we want to travel again and if we want the leisure centres to stay open.”

Meanwhile, the Government of Dubai Media Office, GDMO, has launched #AskDXBOfficial, an initiative that gives the public and the media a chance to ask questions to Dubai’s senior government officials. The initiative is part of GDMO’s objective of creating platforms that allow the community to clarify issues and concerns with government officials.
