The suspension on incoming scheduled passenger flights from India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh has been extended until at least July 28, Dubai's flagship airline Emirates said on Friday.

Passengers who have connected through these countries over the last 14 days, too, will not be accepted to travel from any other point to the UAE, the airline added.

Meanwhile, Dubai schools will continue to offer e-learning options even after the summer break.

School principals said remote learning strategies remain at the forefront of delivery modes for the rest of this year, as some parents are still reluctant to send their wards to schools for on-site learning.

As many as 11 outlets were shut down over the Eid break due to non-compliance with Covid-19 measures. The inspections were conducted from July 19 to 22.

Dubai Municipality said that it had ordered the closures for violations of cleaning and sterilisation protocols, overcrowding, and failure to wear masks and maintain social distancing.
