DUBAI – Eighty-five more people tested positive for Covid-19 in the UAE, while seven others have recently recovered from the new coronavirus, according to the Ministry of Health and Prevention.

The ministry made the announcement on Wednesday (March 25), adding that the UAE’s total number of cases now stood at 333.

Dr. Farida Al Hosani, spokesperson and Director of the Department of Communicable Diseases at Abu Dhabi Centre for Public Health, said the new cases are from various nationalities, including Emiratis, Saudis, Filipinos, Pakistanis, Indians, Chinese and Egyptians.

7 new recoveries

Al Hosani also announced that the seven people who have recently recovered from coronavirus in the UAE include five Bangladeshis and two Pakistanis.

The official said that the seven have been discharged from the hospital. The UAE’s total number of recoveries is now 52.

Meanwhile, Al Hosani stressed the importance of all UAE citizens and residents staying at home to curb the spread of the virus.

“The detection of one infected case compels the authorities to conduct a necessary investigation among all those in contact with this one case in order to identify the source of the infection and its aftermath. In this we usually detect additional cases. It usually starts with a person coming from abroad who tehen transmits the virus to others around him or her,” she explained.

“The recent precautionary measures announced are aimed at protecting society, with the law to be applied only to violators of the UAE law on communicable diseases, under which violators are subject to jail terms and fines,” she warned. ICA/Expat Media
