UAE imposes ban on iftar gatherings during Ramadan

The United Arab Emirates has declared a ban on iftar gatherings as part of a slew of Ramadan protection measures aimed at preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the Gulf state.

According to details, a total of 52.46 percent of the country’s population was successfully vaccinated as part of the national program.

The statement was released on Tuesday when the country’s population had achieved 50% vaccine coverage.

“We are working tirelessly to ensure that any one of our citizens receives the vaccine,” said the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), UAE.

According to the disaster management authority, citizens should “avoid evening meetings during Ramadan, restrict family visits, and avoid sharing and exchanging meals between homes and families” for the sake of society’s health and safety.

People who live in the same house are allowed to share meals, according to the law. The authorities seek citizens’ cooperation and encouraged them to follow protection procedures to the letter.

“We urge all to comply and follow the steps and orders, as there will be vigorous inspection drives throughout Ramadan, and legal action will be taken against any violators, whether persons or organizations,” it warned.

People can also seek information from official sources, according to the NCEMA, and stress abiding by all the safety protocols.

“We emphasize that all steps announced in the national protocol are subject to adjustment based on global and regional health conditions,” the statement continued.
