The UAE Government reported 635 new Covid-19 cases in the country on Monday, June 1.

These cases were the result of 30,147 tests that were conducted to screen for the virus.
The total number of infections detected therefore stands at 35,192.

Officials added that an additional 406 patients had recovered from the virus, raising the total number of recoveries to 18,338.

However, the government also announced that two patients had died as a result of the virus. The overall number of deaths within the country is now 266.

There are currently 16,588 active Covid-19 cases among individuals belonging to different nationalities who are receiving the necessary treatment.

“Since the onset of the crisis, the UAE has focused on select segments of society, primarily the elderly and patients with chronic diseases, in order to ensure they survive the crisis,” said Dr. Amna Al Dahak Al Shamsi, official spokesperson for the UAE Government, according to a report carried by news agency WAM.

“We believe it is particularly morally important to support and stand by them, provide them with their daily needs, and keep them from harm’s way.”

She said that fines and penalties will be enforced against violators, including citizens and residents.

“The law does not differentiate between citizens and residents. We are living in one homeland, which is for all of us.

“Your safety and health are a priority. We must comply with all precautionary measures. Though restrictions have been relaxed, caution must continue to be exercised. Recklessness may undermine the efforts made by our frontline defenders. It is the responsibility of every individual to support protective efforts to ensure the safety of all.”

Abu Dhabi has announced that it will ban movement between different regions of the emirate, as well as entry and exit from the emirate, for a period of one week starting from Tuesday, June 2.
