More than 10.1 million Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the UAE till date.

The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday reported 1,041 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 1,001 recoveries. No new deaths were reported.

As many as 108,906 new Covid-19 tests were carried out, the ministry said, while the total number of tests till date has crossed 10.1 million.

With the UAE reporting over 1,000 Covid-19 cases for the fourth day straight on Saturday, doctors have warned about a ‘pandemic fatigue’ that seems to have set in as residents lower their guards. The country recorded 1,231 cases yesterday. Dr Jean Marc Gauer, CEO, RAK Hospital, said: “The reason for this (surge) is undoubtedly related to the fact that a certain level of ‘pandemic fatigue’ mixed with a degree of complacency has set in. In addition to this, not only in the US but also in Europe, there are a considerable number of people who are just not willing to accept the fact that this pandemic is much more than a common flu and that the consequences of ignoring it can be devastating.”

Meanwhile, the Dubai Police have fined a pilot Dh10,000 for organising a yacht party that violated Covid-19 safety rules. The police took to Twitter to announce that the party hosted 25 guests who did not wear face masks and failed to maintain a safe social distance. According to the prevailing laws, his guests also face a fine of Dh5,000 each for attending the gathering. The police have reminded residents that the safety measures have been rolled out to keep them safe from Covid-19.
