He also said the UAE has “reached its targets for monitoring infections and recoveries”.

“Our community responded aptly to the preventive measures and our institutions fought hard against the virus, supported by our advanced health infrastructure, with its facilities, equipment and medical cadres who contained the pandemic and limited its spread, enabling our country to be the first in the world where Covid-19 tests have exceeded the population count. We have also reached our targets for monitoring infections and recoveries,” he said on the occasion of the UAE’s 49th National Day.

“The pandemic has forced many countries to reassess their healthcare systems. However, in the UAE we have implemented the necessary initiatives to support our health system, whose efficiency and competence we trust.

“We are proud of our healthcare system, which is ranked first in the world in seven health indexes, including its healthcare coverage, lack of health problems and national early detection programmes,” Sheikh Mohammed added.
