During its weekly briefing on COVID-19 situation in the UAE, authorities said that failing to wear mask was the most common violation found during this period.
About 47% of the total violations recorded were for not wearing masks, followed by shops and commercial establishments failing to adhere to the precautionary and preventative measure at 20.5%.
Violations regarding not following the physical distancing were at the third spot in the list at 17.5%.
The lack of compliance with the number of people allowed in a single vehicle was at 8%, and finally random gatherings were at 4.5%.
Authorities said that the UAE has handled this crisis with transparency.
“A year ago, we began a periodical & contentious broadcast for the media briefing, to be updated with the latest COVID-19 developments, to inform people of the precautionary & preventive measures, and to stop rumours,” authorities said in the media briefing.
Vaccination coupled with precautionary measures including wearing a face mask, regularly sanitising hands, and practicing physical distancing, is the fastest and safest way to triumph over COVID-19.
Authorities have made it mandatory for all service providers in the cafes and restaurants to conduct a weekly PCR examination.
The study also showed that the UAE government’s handling of the pandemic’s effect, contributed to the spread of reassurance and a sense of safety among community members, by about 98%.
The Ministry underscored the UAE's keenness to deepen cooperation with the Republic of Sudan in all fields and strengthen ties between the two countries and peoples.
Another blast later in the day near the money exchange market in Jalalabad injured six people, according to police in Nangahar province.
