The country has been leading the world in Covid-19 tests per million of population.
The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Saturday reported new 403 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 679 recoveries.
While Covid-19 is raging across the world with crossing the 12 million mark, the UAE is showing the way in the fight against the coronavirus through its proactive steps. The UAE has introduced one of the world’s most comprehensive testing and tracing regimes early on. With accelerated mass testing, the country has managed to carry out around four million Covid-19 tests in record time. Looking to perform another two million more tests in next two months, the country is on its way to achieving yet another milestone.
Another two million tests will be conducted over the next 60 days, authorities have announced, totalling a whopping six million tests by the end of August, or more than 60 per cent of the UAE’s total population.
Meanwhile, it was declared yesterday that all private sector healthcare facilities in Abu Dhabi were free of Covid-19 cases. This marks a major step in the Capital’s road to recovery from the pandemic. A total of 17 hospitals have all discharged their last patients. The number of cases has come down significantly as part of the health department’s ongoing efforts in conducting massive testing, early detection and treatment mechanisms
