The Commercial Compliance & Consumer Protection (CCCP) Sector in Dubai Economy directed coffee shops to stop serving drinks in baby bottles as the practice is against local customs and the precautionary measures in place against COVID-19. The directive was issued after it was found that visitors bring baby bottles to cafes and fill them up with coffee and beverages.
Inspections teams from Dubai Economy promptly summoned the cafes on being alerted on the negative practice and its risks by social media users. Such indiscriminate use of baby bottles is not only against local culture and traditions but mishandling of the bottle during the filling could also contribute to the spread of COVID-19.
Dubai Economy called on the public to report any negative practices they come across through the Dubai Consumer App available on Apple, Google and Huawei stores, by calling 600545555, or via the Consumerrights.ae website.
The measure aims to enhance precautionary measures as part of efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19 and protect public health.
These commercial activities include hotels, restaurants, transportation and health as well as social and personal activities related to laundries, beauty salons and hairdressers.
As part of its intensified testing campaign, MoHAP records 2,613 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total number of recorded cases in the UAE to 410,849.
The Ministry stressed in a statement its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The reopening of the facilities will enable the gradual return of 40 plus international carriers that are currently operating at Terminals 2 and 3 back to their home terminal at DXB.
It also indicated that the product is not allowed for sale in the UAE, pointing out that the product may enter the country with those coming from abroad, or it may be purchased via the Internet and social networking websites.
