Abdul Rahman bin Mohammed Al Owais, UAE Minister of Health and Community Protection, confirmed a 30% rise in the incidence of new coronavirus among citizens during the last period.
He warned of the danger of social visits and holding gatherings without following preventive and precautionary measures.
This came during a special media briefing held by the UAE government in Abu Dhabi, on Thursday, to discuss developments related to the “COVID-19” disease.
Al-Owais noted that the leadership in the Emirates has been since the first day of the crisis and is still keen on the health and safety of citizens and residents and that some social practices may pose a great danger and contribute to the spread of infection, especially among the elderly and people with chronic diseases.
He stressed that the UAE’s customs and traditions are greatly appreciated and respected by various groups of society, as they constitute a source of strength that strengthens the solidity of the community fabric.
At the same time, he stressed that the exceptional conditions imposed by the spread of the pandemic necessitate that everyone is careful and takes care to protect our families and society.
Al-Owais explained that there are many positive indicators that were recorded and monitored during the last period, such as high recovery rates and low infection rates, in addition to not recording deaths for consecutive days.
He explained that these positive indicators do not mean that the challenge is over, as the experiences of other countries indicate that laxity in applying preventive measures, even if it is a small percentage, leads to great consequences.
Al Owais stressed that the support and cooperation of community members through the adoption of preventive and conservative measures would accelerate the pace of recovery and return to normal life.
During the special briefing, Dr. Omar Al Hammadi, the official spokesperson for the UAE government briefing, announced the numbers and developments of the cases, as the number of new daily checks reached 50,729 examinations that revealed 239 new injuries, bringing the total number of injuries to 61,845 cases.

Al-Hammadi stressed that the commitment of community members contributes to removing the burden on the health sector, and provides sufficient time for researchers and scientists to complete the necessary steps to produce an effective and safe vaccine.
