A top official from the National Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) confirmed that the most violated Covid-19 safety guideline is not wearing face masks.
The official spokesperson of NCEMA, Dr. Saif Al Dhaheri, encouraged the public to always face masks whenever they go out of their premises to limit the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
“As declared earlier, not wearing a face mask was the most frequent violation in all emirates and Asian nationalities were the most likely to violate the precautionary measures. We, therefore, plan to raise the public’s awareness and interact with the most vulnerable categories in the Emirati community, by organizing a media campaign that will highlight their behaviors and cultures on suitable media outlets,” he said during a media briefing last October 4.
Al Dhaheri also reminded the public that all relevant authorities around the country are monitoring violations.
