With the Holy Month almost upon us, the authority is taking proactive measures to ensure that disinformation does not disturb residents' peace.

"To avoid and limit the spread of rumours during the month of Ramadan, Dubai Municipality asks everyone not to forward received rumours, but instead send them to us via the 'Rumours' service."

The 'Rumours' service is in place to help information seekers ensure the validity of such news. It can be accessed by calling 800900 or emailing the authority at info@dm.gov.ae.

Informing Dubai Municipality of such rumours will help them "immediately check" the same and take the necessary measures, the authority added.
