This tracking device should be worn by passengers during the whole 14 day quarantine period and will be removed after 14 days after they land into the country.
UAE has been seeing a daily rise of Coronavirus Infection and it rose to record digits and the officials are blaming people as they are not practising Social Distancing, hence the new rule will be followed by the officials.
