UAE: Violate 14-day quarantine and get jailed for 5 years


Those hard-headed patients in the UAE who were confirmed to have the new coronavirus and violate the quarantine period will be jailed for five years.

Attorney General Hamad Saif Al Shamsi said that as coronavirus spreads across the globe and fears of people failing to follow the 14-day quarantine grows, he is warning the public against violating the precautionary measure.

He added that breaking the 14-day home quarantine and coming into contact with others is considered a violation under the law as it puts the health and safety of society members at risk.

The penalty for this violation can go up to five years in jail/or fine between AED 50,000 to AED 100,000.
