A coffee shop in Dubai's Al Seef area has been shut down for flouting COVID-19 safety measures.

It comes after teams from Dubai Economy inspected several outlets in the emirate.

Nine establishments were fined, while six other shops were issued warnings after their employees were caught ignoring social distancing rules and for not wearing face masks.

As many as 668 businesses were found to comply with the safety measures that have been put in place to curb the spread of COVID-19.

Authorities have urged the public to report any COVID-19 safety violations through the Dubai Consumer app.
