Would i go to Jail if i fail Dubai medical fitness test ?

I recently came to Dubai to look for a job, i knew about the medical test for employment visa because it’s what every expat go through before you become a resident but what i didn’t know is that It’s not only HIV-Aids  test that is done but many others like X-ray for tuberculosis (TB) Hepatitis B and C, , leprosy, syphilis and  pregnancy.
Am a bit in  panic because before coming to Dubai I only tested for HIV-AIDS,

Hi Mike,  I have been living in Dubai for the last 6 years, I have heard few cases including two in my company where people have been deported due to failed tests on new or visa renewal, however, i have never heard of anyone taken to prison due to failed test but I think with diseases like Aids and TB if the person is found positive, he or she will be taken to an isolated place until the ticket is ready for deportation.
There some private clinics that can help you with all tests. so it’s better if you not sure, do all other tests privately before  you go for the government medical fitness center.
