Dubai - No, UAE schools will NOT be closed due to coronavirus

Thank you for reading the news about No, UAE schools will NOT be closed due to coronavirus and now with the details

Aden - Yasmine El Tohamy - A fake headline has been photoshopped on a genuine KT news gallery published on January 30.

A photoshopped screenshot of a news article, falsely declaring that schools will be closed from February 2 due to "coronavirus outbreak" is doing the rounds on social media platforms.

The headline of the fake news article has (obviously) been morphed to a genuine one headlined: 'In pictures: UAE residents take precautions against coronavirus' published on January 30. The fake headline has a misplaced comma and a full-stop at the end of it - both of which are unforgivable errors, as per Al Khaleej Today standards.

The genuine KT article talked about how the UAE's Ministry of Health and Prevention reassured residents that there was nothing to panic about as the virus situation was under control. A four-member Chinese family infected is the only confirmed case in the UAE so far, according to the ministry.

As Al Khaleej Today reported on Thursday, some UAE schools are raising awareness against the coronavirus as a precaution, though they are stressing that parents should not panic as schools are "completely safe". (No need to panic: How UAE schools are raising awareness about coronavirus)

The World Health Organisation declared a global emergency over the new coronavirus, as China reported on Friday the death toll had climbed to 213 with nearly 10,000 infections.
