The authorities in the UAE have reiterated the importance of a newly launched initiative called #StayHome or #ManatiliSaBahay in Filipino.

Just recently, an unnmaed European girl was arrested after posting a video showing her indifference to the #StayHome national campaign. She had also encouraged people to defy Dubai’s social distancing instructions.

A case against her was already referred to the public prosecution.

In a separate situation, a beach-goer was also arrested for publishing a video showing himself on a local beach, violating the instructions set by the authorities.

According to an Instagram post by the Dubai Police, non-compliance with the safety measures will lead one to imprisonment and/or a fine between AED 200,000 and AED 1 million.
