During the same period, 23 venues were found to have violated Covid safety measures, the tourism authority said.

Even as Covid safety rules have been relaxed and multiple venues opened for vaccinated residents, authorities have stepped up inspections to ensure adherence to the new rules.

The Dubai Economy on Sunday said it had issued 56 fines for violations at malls and markets. Most of them were failure to masks and crowding.

Social distancing violations were mostly spotted at payment counters, as shoppers thronged malls for super sale promotions.
