DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – In a sweeping measure intended to combat the spread of the coronavirus, United Arab Emirates imposed a ban on its citizens traveling abroad from Wednesday “until further notice.” It also stopped all visa-on-arrival began on Thursday and impose mandatory 14-day quarantine on anyone entering the country, each violation will be prosecuted.

The measure, which is intended to be temporary but effective immediately, is “in the interests of the state for the health and safety of its citizens in the light of the rapid spread of the virus throughout the world,” the Ministry of UAE Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said in a statement Wednesday ,

UAE visa suspension, which also will continue “until further notice,” affects people from more than 72 countries, but it will not affect citizens of the UAE. 9.4 million Gulf countries have had 113 cases of the virus, COVID-19. Among them, 26 have been recovered.

Anyone who violates the mandatory self-quarantine period of 14 days “the risk of legal action,” said the state attorney general Hamad Al Shamsi Wednesday, adding that ignoring precaution is “a crime to be punished.” It was not immediately clear whether they were under quarantine will be allowed to leave their homes to buy essential goods, but the previous government has encouraged citizens to use delivery services, which operate largely in the UAE.

UAE is among several Gulf countries have implemented comprehensive measures to combat the spread of the virus, which has infected more than 200,000 people and killed more than 8,000 globally. Saudi Arabia has also put a ban on its citizens traveling abroad in an effort to stem the spread coronavirus.

coronavirus crisis has impacted all aspects of life UAE, including closing a business, schools, gyms, places of worship and public parks. Tourism and hospitality, as well as entertainment, retail, transport and food and beverage industry the country’s economic mainstay – especially for the emirate of Dubai, the commercial capital of the country. Restaurants and hotels are now sitting empty, flights have been cut and the taxi driver and hourly workers face pay cuts and layoffs in potential.

The state government in Abu Dhabi announced a $ 27 billion stimulus package last week in an effort to support businesses and banks hit by the decline in economic activity as tourism grinds to halt and authorities urged residents to stay at home.

The ban on travel comes as several countries closed their borders and others, especially in Europe, went into full-on lockdown. The EU has shut down all external border for 30 days, in an extraordinary step, while more countries urged their citizens against non-essential travel from day to day.
