A Covid-infected youth, who breached home quarantine rules and posted a video showing him grabbing a cup of coffee, has been arrested in Dubai.


According to Brigadier Jamal Salem Al Jallaf, Director of the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) at the Dubai Police, legal action has been taken against the youth and he has been put in quarantine.

The man has also been given a fine of Dh50,000.

“Not only did he violate home quarantine laws, he also deliberately bragged about his recklessness and published a video on social media platforms. His irresponsible action provoked public opinion as he endangered the lives of others,” Brig. Al Jallaf said.

Violating home quarantine instructions is punishable with a Dh50,000 fine. The Dubai Police officer said: “Article 31 of the UAE’s cybercrime law states that encouraging violation of the laws and regulations of the state by publishing information is punishable with imprisonment and/or a fine of between Dh200,000 and Dh1 million.”
