Breaches can be reported through the Dubai Police Call Centre at 901 or via the ‘Police Eye’ service, state news agency WAM reported on Sunday.

“Everyone is responsible and is a partner in supporting the country’s efforts in strengthening precautionary measures through their commitment to the guidelines outlined by authorities,” Dubai Police said.

The UAE on Sunday recorded less than 3,000 new COVID-19 cases for the first time since Jan. 12.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) said there had been 2,948 new coronavirus infections and 12 deaths in the previous 24 hours.

The figures represented a marked drop from the 3,647 cases announced Saturday and 3,962 cases on Friday, amid hope that a sharp increase since the end of December had reached its peak.
