The Dubai government last night announced a host of new fines and curfew timings to further combat the spread of Coronavirus.
The live press conference took place last night and featured a new list of fines and timings to halt the spread of Covid-19.
From May 20 onwards, Coronavirus sterilisation measures in Dubai will take place from 8 pm until 6 am each day. During Eid, shops and malls can open from 9 am to 7 pm, with revised opening times for after Eid to be released.
Some shops will be allowed to open for 24-hours including food outlets, supermarkets and pharmacies. And mosques and places of worship remain closed, so all Eid prayers will need to be performed at home.
