DUBAI, Apr 4, 2020, SPA -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has extended a de-facto night-time curfew indefinitely to disinfect public areas to fight the spread of coronavirus, Reuters echoed the state-run news agency WAM report, late on Friday.

The disinfection drive, which consists of spraying and cleaning streets, parks and public transport facilities, is being carried out between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. each day, and people have been ordered to stay at home during those hours.

It began on March 26 and had already been extended a week ago until April 5.
