The ministry posted a screenshot of the fake tweet with a 'FALSE NEWS' stamp above it. The fake tweet reads: "(Sic) Due to steadily increasing coronavirus cases, we've decided impose another lockdown with immediate effect starting from Sunday and urge everyone to self quarantine. Stay at home and stay safe." The ministry called on residents to obtain information from its official sources and not to circulate rumours or news issued by fake accounts.

Earlier today, it was announced that six sports establishments in Dubai were fined for flouting Covid-19 safety rules, while 10 others were let off with warning as inspection teams from Dubai Sports Council (DSC) and Dubai Economy continue to crack down on violating businesses.
