Another user shared on Twitter (@lyzaborjal) of a BMW Dubai Police car with the same message.

It is very important for us all to practice social distancing. The virus has claimed thousands of lives globally and we should all do our part and avoid going out (unless necessary).

Dubai Police has also been patrolling the streets in order to keep reminding and calling out residents outside to stay home. Here’s a video:

Restaurants are now closed as well as shopping centers. Supermarkets and pharmacies remain open for our basic necessities.
