DUBAI, Jun 29: Abu Dhabi, the oil-rich capital of the United Arab Emirates, has announced that a wide range of public places will soon be accessible only to those vaccinated against the coronavirus in a bid to encourage more people to get shots. The Emirati government on Monday said that starting August 20, authorities will begin restricting access to shopping malls, restaurants, cafes, sporting activities, museums, gyms, schools and universities. The nonvaccinated will effectively be barred from entering any business in the city except for supermarkets and pharmacies. Abu Dhabi has already rolled out a “green pass” system that limits public access to those who have either received the shot or can show a negative virus test. (AP)
