UAE Enforces Strict Fines for COVID-19 Violators




Ever since the Coronavirus began worsening throughout the days in several countries, quarantines and places being shut down was the safest option to ensure the health of all our people.

On the other hand, some people took the news about having to stay at home pretty bad and ignored the laws that were enforced on us regardless of the Coronavirus being a dangerous pandemic that we are trying to keep at bay.

Some countries have created a fine for people to pay if they were to break the rules. Dubai has taken serious action against anyone who is violating the preventive instructions and measures that were given by the government. Believe it or not, according to the rules by the country’s cabinet, a fine for up to $13,600 will be payed for serious violators.

Some people may believe that these decisions are too rough but the seriousness as well as extremity of the virus is getting worse, and people would rather be safe than sorry. Commanding a fine this high and expensive will hopefully keep people at home and make them understand that this is no joke.

The Ministry of Interior, The Ministry of Health and Prevention, and the State News Agency have reported that the fines will commence at $136 and above depending on what they have violated.

The citizens would pay a fine if they refuse to be hospitalized, unnecessary travel, or even go against abiding by the home quarantine instructions. Yes, Dubai is taking things very strictly out of fear of taking things lightly such as Italy and China did. Look at where they are today.

UAE has recorded at least 400 cases of people that have been infected with COVID-19 which is why they have initiated a three day disinfection that had forced people to be restricted from roaming around the country freely.

Here are few of the laws that have been enforced on the people:

  • $272.26 fine for not wearing medical masks indoors
  • $272.26 fine for unnecessary visits to hospitals and other health facilities
  • $272.26 fine for allowing more than 3 persons in car
  • $272.26 fine for not maintaining social distancing while walking
  • $544.51 fine for leaving home with no important work or a genuine reason

We are glad that UAE is taking extreme safety precautions. When people see the number on this list, they’ll definitely be more willing to cooperate and follow the rules!

AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine Shows 90% Effectiveness With No Serious Side Effects




AstraZeneca announced today the effectiveness of its Covid-19 vaccine and it turned out to be around 90% effective with no serious side effects!

According to data from the late-stage trials in Britain and Brazil, the vaccine, which is developed by Oxford University, has shown 90% effectiveness after being administered as a a half dose followed by a full dose at least one month apart.

“This vaccine’s efficacy and safety confirm that it will be highly effective against COVID-19 and will have an immediate impact on this public health emergency,” Pascal Soriot, Astra’s chief executive, said in a statement.

British Prime minister Boris Johnson said it was “incredibly exciting news the Oxford vaccine has proved so effective in trials.”

The next step now is for the company to start preparing regulatory submission of the data to authorities across the world that have a framework in place for conditional or early approval.

It will also seek an emergency use listing from the World Health Organization (WHO) to speed up availability in countries with low income. In parallel, the full analysis of the interim results is being submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

With both Oxford’s and Pfizer’s vaccines, we can be hopeful that the new year will come bearing good news!

Another Coronavirus Vaccine By Moderna Shows 94.5% Effectiveness!




Yet another promising news for a Covid-19 vaccine has been announced! Moderna said today that its vaccine has shown 94.5% effectiveness in preventing the virus, according to an analysis of its clinical trial.

The biotech company made the announcement earlier today, giving us a dash of hope amidst this coronavirus scare.

The news follows the announcement made by Pfizer and BioNTech, who said their vaccine was more than 90% effective.

The results come from interim analyses of intensive clinical studies. The clinical trials of Moderna saw the participation of 30,000 volunteers. Half got two doses of the vaccine 28 days apart, half got two shots of a placebo on the same schedule.

“This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent COVID-19 disease, including severe disease,” said Stéphane Bancel, chief executive officer of Moderna, in a statement.

Both companies used the same technology in making the vaccines, which is a tech based on a molecule known as mRNA, or messenger RNA. That molecule contains genetic instructions for making proteins inside cells.

We hope that by the end of this year, we can rest assured that a vaccine can soon end this pandemic.
