Dubai Police have confirmed they’ve shut down a huge desert camp that illegally organised a private party for hundreds of people.
Dubai Police were working alongside Dubai Tourism as they shut down the desert camp. The huge camp violated a number of Covid-19 measures.
The camp operator was fined AED50,000 and each person there was fined AED15,000.
Dubai Media Office posted this video below highlighting just how big the desert camp was.

Dubai’s nightlife has effectively been put on hold with bars and pubs closed and brunches banned until the end of the month.
The measures were set by Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management and run until February 28.
And as you can see from the desert camp story above, there are now tougher fines and penalties for anyone caught breaking the rules!
