Abu Dhabi has activated radars across the emirate to detect residents who step out during the national disinfection drive.

Authorities placed a movement restriction in the UAE capital from midnight to 5:00 am, starting today.

This includes a full suspension of traffic, residents and transportation services.

Alerts will not be issued ahead of the 12:00 am restriction.

However, residents who need to leave their homes for essential travel, like visiting the pharmacy, can procure a movement permit online.

These proactive measures are in addition to various new restrictions in malls and other public places in light of the new delta variant.
