Residents are sharing footage of big queues at Dubai Metro this morning after the Roads and Transport Authority enforced social distancing.
Local reports suggest the number of people permitted within carriages has been limited significantly as the UAE continues its efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19. The result, however, was major lines at Metro stations across the city this morning.
