Dubai Police shut down huge illegal desert camp party

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.

Pubs and bars closed and hotel and mall capacity reduced under new Covid rules

Dubai’s nightlife has effectively been put on hold with bars and pubs closed and brunches banned until the end of the month.

  • 50% reduction in the capacity of indoor seated venues including cinemas, entertainment & sports venues
  • Malls to operate at 70% capacity
  • Hotels to operate at 70% capacity; new bookings should comply
  • The capacity of swimming pools and private beaches in hotels to be limited to 70%
  • Pubs/bars will be closed

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!
