COVID-19: Dubai closes all bars and clubs after influencers flocked to the city

All bars and clubs in Dubai are to be shut this month following spike in COVID-19 cases, after influencers flooded the city to avoid pandemic restrictions.

The UK Government has last week added the UAE to a “red list” of countries, meaning all direct flights from Dubai to Britain were suspended.

The UK government made it clear that those UK citizens and influencers having fun in the sun in Dubai should return home immediately and self-isolate before the ban set in.

However, many of those out in Dubai ignored the UK Prime Minister’s requests, mocking the UK lockdown and continuing with their partying.

Unfortunately, the partying won’t go on for much longer as Dubai officials have finally decided to clamp down on restrictions.

A spokesman for the Dubai Media Office blamed “a marked increase in the number of violations of precautionary measures” for the shutdown of its bars and clubs, adding that New Year’s Eve also played a huge part in the spike of COVID-19 cases.

The spokesman said:

“The measures seek to further enhance efforts to combat Covid-19, and protect the health and safety of all citizens, residents and visitors.”

Despite the restrictions, restaurants in Dubai will remain open and influencers will still be allowed to relax around by the pool.
