Abu Dhabi Police are urging the public to report people who flout Covid-19 rules.

Offenders can be reported anonymously via the police’s Aman service, which operates round the clock.

The request came after the UAE on Tuesday announced 3,601 new Covid-19 cases, extending its streak of record infections to 15 days.

Last week, Dubai Police chief Lt Gen Abdullah Al Marri also urged people to report offenders.

He said house parties and family gatherings had contributed to the rise in cases this month.

Lt Gen Al Marri said many people had defied rules designed to prevent the spread of the virus.

He said there were recent instances in which as many as 80 people gathered at house parties.

“There are parties in which the number is limited to 20 or 40 people but we find 80. This is unacceptable behaviour,” Lt Gen Al Marri said.

He said it was difficult to monitor people in their homes. The officer urged citizens and residents to be more responsible and report people who fail to keep their side of the bargain.
