DUBAI – The UAE has conducted a total of 5 million Covid-19 tests so far, while the survival rate for those with coronavirus rose to 90 percent this week, an official said.

Abdul Rahman bin Mohammed Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention, said the UAE’s policy to increase tests greatly contributed to the early detection and treatment of cases.

Al Owais said advanced treatment protocols and competent frontliners have contributed to the increase in Covid-19 recovery rate in the country, which has one of the world’s highest rate of recovery.

As of Monday, a total of 54,863 people out of 61,163 total cases have recovered from coronavirus in the UAE.

In Abu Dhabi, door-to-door testing is ongoing in the capital’s most populous areas to help curb the spread of coronavirus.
