The infected patients – a Filipino and a Chinese – are said to be in a stable state.

A four-member Chinese family and another Chinese national – all five from the city of Wuhan where the virus originated – were the previous confirmed cases in the UAE.

The ministry stressed the effectiveness of a predictive electronic system to identify patients at high risk of contracting the novel coronavirus it launched last week.

Everything you need to know about the coronavirus outbreak

An early warning system (Wareed system) was activated across all its healthcare facilities to quickly identify individuals at higher risk of acquiring coronavirus infection.

The early warning system coordinates and manages a potential outbreak. Once automated, algorithms identify a patient as high-risk, the Wareed system places consecutive orders for the patient to be isolated and treated immediately.

The Ministry said the move was taken in cooperation with the UAE’s health authorities as a precautionary measure to protect the country against coronavirus.
