DUBAI – With private tutorials still banned in the UAE amid the Covid-19 pandemic, authorities on Wednesday (October 21) reminded residents that violators of the ban face a Dh30,000 fine.
According to the UAE Public Prosecution, organisers of private tutorials and attendees face a fine of Dh30,000, while whoever hosts such tutorials will be fined Dh20,000.
The latest warning came as the daily number of coronavirus cases in the UAE continued to hit highs of more than 1,000 infections.
Government spokesman Dr. Omar Al Hammadi said the rise in cases was expected.
“The past period has seen a marked increase in the number of positive and recovered cases, this rise is a natural and predicted result based on the global pattern, as a result of the gradual return to normal life,” Al Hammadi said.
The UAE is currently working on a vaccine for Covid-19, with clinical trials for another Russian-made vaccine also expected to be administered to volunteers in the UAE soon. ICA/Expat Media
