Authorities in the UAE have once again named and shamed individuals who were caught flouting the health and safety measures related to COVID-19.
The photos of a number of violators were displayed during a media briefing on Wednesday.
Their offences were linked to not wearing a mask, holding gatherings and violating the norms of the recent movement restrictions.
Officials have once again called for everyone’s support in curbing the spread of the pandemic.
They have also added that irresponsible behaviour and disregard for the rules could prompt them to introduce stricter measures.
