We provide you with coverage of the extraordinary briefing held by the UAE government on the latest developments related to the Covid-19 virus.
Here are some of the briefing details.
#Emergency_and_crises: Since the beginning of the crisis, the entire national system has been working on reading the epidemiological situation in the country locally and globally and following up on all developments and indicators, as we have observed in the previous period an increase in the number of #Covid19 injuries in several countries globally.
#Emergencies and Crises: We have also witnessed in the previous period a significant increase in the number of cases of #Covid19 in the country, as cases in the country increased by more than 100% in less than a week, and the rate of hospitalizations was also noted.
#Emergencies and crises: This rise comes after the stability of the situation in the country for a period that was not brief, praise be to God, and after the integration of national efforts and community cooperation for a not short period, and this was thanks to your awareness and keenness.
#Emergency_and Crises: However, in the recent period, we have monitored some behaviors that have become a danger to society, to public health and an indication of laxity in the application of precautionary and preventive measures, which negatively affects the recovery efforts that all parties are working on.
#Emergency_and_crisis: Studies have proven that wearing masks is one of the most important factors in maintaining health and safety from the risk of infection with Covid-19. The effectiveness of the mask lies in reducing the speed and strength of the spread of the disease, especially in closed and crowded places.
#Emergency_and_crisis: We would like to remind you that wearing masks in closed places is mandatory, as negligence in doing so is a violation and the perpetrator will be punished with a fine of up to 3000 thousand dirhams, according to Public Prosecution Decision No. (38) for the year 2020 This will also be tightened over the coming period by the competent teams .
#Emergency_and_crises: It was noted that a small group of people infected with #Covid-19 did not adhere to sanitary isolation, which threatens the safety of society and causes the spread of the virus due to the lack of responsibility of people, and here we confirm that anyone who causes an outbreak of the virus will be subject to legal accountability by the competent authorities.
