UAE sees drop in COVID-19 infections

WAM

The UAE has witnessed a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases recently.

Dr. Farida Al Hosani, the health sector's official spokesperson, said this was mainly due to the country's emphasis on early detection and quick response in dealing with infected people and their contacts.

She also highlighted the role of the UAE's well-equipped health infrastructure and proactive strategy based on the latest international practices.

Dr. Hosani added that the UAE continues to head the global rankings for the daily distribution of COVID-19 vaccine doses.

The current distribution rate is 158.24 doses per 100 people.

Around 74.5 per cent of the population has received at least one dose, while 64.3 per cent are fully vaccinated.

During the latest government media briefing, the official also reminded people to get a booster shot after they have received two doses of the vaccine.

Dr. Al Hosani once again urged people to follow all precautionary measures and keep track of the rules if they are travelling abroad during the summer holidays.
