The UAE government reported 726 new Covid-19 cases on Saturday, May 30.

The total number of cases detected in the country has risen to 33,896.

It also announced 449 recoveries, and as a result 17,546 people have recovered after contracting the virus.

Dr. Amna Al Dahak Al Shamsi, official spokesperson for the UAE Government, also confirmed two additional fatalities taking the overall death toll to 262.

The new cases were detected following 42,624 tests that were conducted to screen for the virus.

The spokesperson added that a total of 16,088 patients are currently being treated for the virus.

“People who are most susceptible to the infection have to take extra care of themselves, namely those suffering from diabetics, hypertension and asthma as well as other respiratory and heart diseases. They have to completely abide by all precautionary measures, including physical distancing norms; not go out; avoid gatherings; eat healthy food; and practice sport” said Dr Amna, reported official news agency WAM.

Dr Amna even addressed the subject of whether the relaxation in restrictions and the decision to resume economic activity would lead to an increase in cases and if the number of cases were on the decline. She said: “It is possible the number of infections may increase; it all hinges on how people abide by the precautionary measures. We cannot affirm that the virus is subsiding. However, we all share in the collective responsibility to act and reach the recovery phase; the more we comply with the precautionary measures, the better we are able to control the virus spread.”

Dr Amna also denied social media rumors that Covid-19 is caused by bacteria rather than a virus. “All official studies have affirmed that the disease is caused by the SARS CoV virus. However, it is possible that the COVID-19 patients could be prone to other bacteria infections resulting from the corona complications.”

She noted that aspirin was not used to treat Covid-19, adding that more efficient medications are being used instead.
