The UAE has been doing a stellar job in keeping the virus at bay, even as the country ramps up its Covid-19 vaccination drive.

However, myths are flying fast and thick among residents, contributing to the spread of the virus. The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has taken to Twitter to list out some common misconceptions “we hear everyday”. Make sure you act responsibly and don’t fall for these:

>> I am tired of wearing the mask: Read our report on how double-masking offers protection from new Covid strains.

>> I am a close contact, but my test result is negative: Regardless of the test result, a close contact has to quarantine for 10 days as he/she can be a virus carrier.

>> I am a close contact, but I don’t have any symptoms.

>> I already got Covid, I am immune.

>> Let’s plan a gathering with all our friends: Read our report on the Dubai Police chief explaining how gatherings are the main reason behind the spike in Covid-19 cases. Also, read our guide on rules on gatherings, parties and other Covid safety rules across the Emirates.
