AED 50K Fine And 5 Year Imprisonment For People With Covid-19 And Purposely Transmit It With Others

With the aim to protect public health, a new law in the UAE has been passed for all people who know they have the coronavirus and intentionally transmit it with others.

"The law states that any person who knows that they are suffering from a communicable disease is punishable by a minimum of 5 years' imprisonment and/or a fine of not less than AED 50,000 and not more than AED 100,000, if they deliberately transmit the disease," Dubai Police has announced.

Repeated violations may result in lengthier sentences.
