Update from Dubai/UAE
Govt has issued notice to all private organisations that they cannot have more than 20% of their workforce at work at any one time, unless they are in a nominated essential service, ie supermarket, certain manufacturing that cannot shut down (ie my company and myself as I continue to enjoy driving on empty roads to work), pharmacy etc.
As of tonight 8pm, everyone must be home unless in a nominated essential service for 60h until Sunday 6am while the whole country is disinfected. All PT ie trains, trams, buses taxi's etc will be stopped. The airports have been closed for 24h and will remain so for two weeks. Read we have a soft curfew in place from 8pm, although this word has not been used. Everything else including hair dressers, malls etc etc is closed. Only home delivery available.
60 people who were previously confirmed they are infected have been charged and arrested for breaking quarantine. Notice issued on radio and media this morning people will be heavily fined and jailed going forward for breaking quarantine.
The sky over UAE, normally very congested is very quiet, just freighters.
I drove past Dubai's 2nd airport yesterday, its completely full of Emirates airlines planes, double parked, triple parked, quadruple parked, they only operate 777 and 380's so a sight to be hold to see over 150 very expensive pieces of hardware doing nothing parked neatly in lines.
In some areas people in the streets have been told to go home by the police.
