The United Arab Emirates eased the nationwide coronavirus curfews over the weekend. As part of the same, Dubai has cut its emirate-wide 24-hour lockdown back to a 10pm to 6am curfew and has lifted its full lockdown on two commercial districts which have a large population of low-income migrant workers.
The two commercial Al Ras and Naif districts, which were sealed earlier, will now be eased as no new COVID-19 cases were recorded in the two areas in the last two days. The decision has been taken by the Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management.
On April 24, Dubai, the Middle East’s business hub allowed dine-in cafes and restaurants to resume business with a maximum capacity of 30 per cent and shopping malls to be reopened partially.
Places of worship like mosque and cinemas still remain closed.
