Fujairah shut 23 outlets for Covid violations in 2020
35,749 food and health entities across the emirate were inspected
The Fujairah Municipality shut down 23 outlets, including eateries and health centres, last year for flouting measures put in place to check the spread of Covid-19 pandemic.
Mohamed Saif Al Afkham, director-general of Fujairah Municipality, said they have also issued 1,457 violation tickets and warning letters to some other shops. “These shops were found to be preserving and displaying food in improper condition, and blatantly breaching the anti-Covid measures and health protocols.”
Staff inspectors inspected up to 35,749 food and health entities across the emirate of Fujairah last year, he revealed.
“These included central and traditional markets, eateries, shops, health centres and abattoirs.”
Records show that the civic body also issued 5,354 health cards over the same period to make sure that the staffers “who are handling food” are free from any contagious disease.
Al Afkham urged the public to report any violations that they might encounter to the Fujairah Municipality on their toll-free number.
“Our teams are accessible round the clock at 80036,” he said, warning intensive raids will continue to make businesses fall in line.
