UAE reports lowest number of Covid-19 cases since April


DUBAI – The UAE looked on track to beat Covid-19, on Monday (August 3) recording its lowest number of new coronavirus cases since April.

On Monday, 164 new cases of Covid-19 were reported after 27,811 tests were conducted across the country in 24 hours.

There were also no new deaths, while 248 more people recovered from the virus.

Meanwhile, Abu Dhabi authorities said door-to-door testing drive will continue until “Covid-19 fight is won”.

A special police patrol unit, medics and volunteers have been offering free Covid-19 tests in heavily populated neighbourhoods in the capital since June.

“We will continue and fight ‘til the end, until we reach zero cases,” said Mansoor Al Qubaisi, official of Abu Dhabi public hospital operator SEHA. ICA/Expat Media
