We all know a friend on social media who goes to great lengths to brag about their daily life online, even a deadly pandemic cannot stop them from going all out about what’s going on in their lives!

Similarly, a UAE resident who tested positive for Coronavirus took to social media showing himself going against quarantine rules and trumpeting about his move of getting a cup of coffee with people near him.. Very soon, Dubai Police fined him a whopping AED 50,000 and sentenced him to imprisonment, in line with the UAE’s cyber-crime law.

“Not only did he violate home quarantine laws, but he also deliberately bragged about his recklessness and published a video on social media platforms. His irresponsible action provoked public opinion as he endangered the lives of others.”
