The decision is effective Tuesday, the UAE Civil Aviation Authority said in a statement.

Bahrain on Monday temporarily banned flights to and from Dubai, the Middle East’s airline hub, and Sharjah in the UAE as Middle East countries reported more cases overnight.
 
Flights will be suspended for 48 hours, Bahrain’s state news agency reported.
