Dubai announces two dedicated Covid-19 treatment facilities

Al Khawaneej and Al Badaa health centres will be set aside exclusively for the treatment of Covid-19 patients


The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Sunday evening announced that Al Khawaneej and Al Badaa health centres will be dedicated to treat Covid-19 patients.

Dr. Hanan Al Hammadi, Consultant and Director of the Medical Affairs Department at the Primary Health Care Services Sector at the DHA said that the centres will treat patients who were referred based on appointments set by the DHA Contact Centre and the Covid-19 Command and Control Centre, reported the Dubai Media Office.

Dr. Al Hammadi added that doctors will evaluate each case and conduct necessary tests to determine if the patient requires home or institutional isolation, or if they should be referred to a hospital.

“In line with the DHA’s keenness to enhance the operational capacities of its centres and ensure the delivery of quality services, the DHA has relocated Al Khawaneej Health Centre’s regular customers to Al Twar, Nad Al Hamr and Al Mizhar health centres. Customers of Al Badaa Health Centre have been relocated to Al Mankhool and Barsha health centres,” said Dr. Al Hammadi.

The DHA further urged the categories targeted in the Covid-19 vaccination drive to take the vaccine. Currently, those categories include those aged 60 and above, people with chronic diseases, people of determination, frontline personnel in both the public and private sectors and vital-sector workers.

The DHA also said on Saturday that it will begin administering the Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine to residents and citizens aged 60 and above.

The UAE has reported a total of 2,948 additional Covid-19 infections on January 31.
