As coronavirus spreads in UAE, Ministry of Health asks residents to avoid traveling at the moment


As UAE health authorities reported six new coronavirus cases on Tuesday and two new cases on Wednesday, the Ministry of Health has called on residents and citizens to avoid traveling.

The announcement was made due to the current situation of the coronavirus outbreak and its spread in several countries.

If travel is a must, a preventive measure will be applied to the passenger upon their return to the country.

“Decision will be taken by responsible officials according to assessments done upon return of the passengers,” Gulf News reported.

As part of the ‘preventive measure’, officers will check returning passengers at the airport and then home quarantine until the traveler is cleared. If an infection is seen, procedures will be applied for sanitary isolation in health facilities.
