With Covid cases in some countries on the rise, authorities in the UAE have called on citizens and expats who are planning to travel to adhere to all precautionary measures.

In a media briefing on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) advised travellers to double-check the Covid safety rules applicable in their destination countries. This will help them avoid penalties for non-compliance, the spokesperson added.

“We continue to monitor all relevant data to limit the spread of Covid-19,” the official said.

He referred to the fact that the UAE has not recorded a single Covid-related death in over two months. The last Covid-related death was reported on March 7.
