UAE limits event venues to individuals vaccinated against Covid-19

UAE Tuesday said only individuals vaccinated against covid-19 or who can produce a negative PCR test are allowed to attend events in the Gulf country which has begun opening up.
Dr. Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson of the UAE Health Sector, reports say, said the new measures will come into effect on June 6.
She added individuals still have to wear face masks and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
The measures come as the Gulf country prepares to organize social events.

Maximum attendees at indoor events in Dubai have been capped at 1,500, and for outdoor events that cap stands at 2,500 people, the online media notes.
The Arab country top the world in term of number of jabs administrated. A total of 12,294,706 jabs have been administered, with a vaccine distribution rate of 124.31 doses per 100 people.
Dr Farida also indicated that more than 78.11 percent of people over 16 years and 84.59 of individuals over 60 years have been vaccinated.
The Middle East country Tuesday reported 559,291 cases as infection toll including 539,161 recoveries, 18,472 active cases and 1,658 deaths.
