The sterilisation drive will take place daily between midnight and 5 am. During these hours, the movement of traffic and the public will be restricted and there will be no transportation services.

Dubai's flagship carrier Emirates announced all the rules tourists travelling from, to and through the emirate will have to adhere to on Friday.

Despite precautions, the UAE continues to remain on the UK’s red list of countries after a travel review by the government on Thursday.

This means that only UK and Irish nationals as well as those UAE residents who have UK residency can travel to the European country directly - but they will have to quarantine in a hotel on arrival.
