Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA) has decided to exclusively reserve the Al Ain Hospital to treat and isolate patients infected with the Covid-19 virus, reported official news agency WAM.

Those patients who are currently being treated within the hospital and are not coronavirus-related cases will be transferred to Tawam Hospital and other nearby medical facilities in Al Ain city.

“The move is in line with SEHA’s efforts to strengthen and ensure the quality of healthcare services provided to the public, and comes as part of national efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country,” said Rashid Saif Al Qubaisi, deputy CEO of SEHA.

On April 1, the UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention reported 150 new coronavirus cases, taking the total number of those infected within the country up to 814.
