DUBAI: The Louvre Abu Dhabi and Dubai Opera are the latest venues to close amid coronavirus fears, as the number of cases around the globe continues to grow.
Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism has temporarily closed a selection of main tourist attractions in the emirate from Sunday, starting March 14 to 31, as the country continues to stop the spread of coronavirus in the country, state news agency WAM reported on Saturday.
The closures include Qasr Al-Watan, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, Ferrari World and Manarat Al-Saadiyat.
The Dubai Department of Economic Development also directed on Sunday all cinemas, theme parks, amusement and electronic game centres, fitness gyms and spring camps licensed in Dubai to halt all their activities and services until end of the month.
Dubai's Global Village also announced the early closure of its 2019-2020 season.
"In line with ongoing efforts to safeguard public health, Global Village has announced the early closure of its 2019-2020 season with immediate effect. Global Village looks forward to welcoming visitors for its next season," the Dubai Media Office said in a tweet.
