UAE says recent drop in new Covid-19 cases due to early detection, fast response

The country has provided a total of 15.5 million vaccine doses so far

The recent decrease in the number of new Covid-19 cases in the UAE has come following the implementation of new measures in the country, the Health Sector has said.

Case numbers have reduced from roughly 2,000 everyday to around 1,600 in the last five days.

“We recently witnessed a decrease in positive cases, confirming the health sector’s and concerned entities’ ability to control the spread of the virus,” National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA) said on Twitter.

“The spread is controlled via applying methods of early detection, fast response and professionalism when dealing with infected individuals and their contacts following the latest global practices.”

Authorities also urged everyone in the country to get vaccinated as the UAE seeks to achieve community immunity.

So far, 74.5 per cent of the UAE’s population has received the first dose of the vaccine and while 64.3 per cent has received both the doses.

The country has provided a total of 15.5 million vaccine doses.

The Health Sector also recommended a vaccine booster dose for all those eligible.

“As the health sector follows the best ways to protect society, it was critical to provide vaccines to control the pandemic, including the booster shot, given after the main doses to stimulate immunity,” NCEMA said.

“These shots are provided in other kinds of vaccines, like the seasonal flu vaccine. We recommend that eligible individuals take the vaccines after consulting a specialised doctor as to protect themselves and support the national effort in combating the pandemic.”

The Covid-19 vaccines are still considered new and scientific studies on its effectiveness and impact are ongoing, the NCEMA stressed.

“We confirm that the process of developing and changing vaccines and medicines is ongoing, in the aim to get to the best vaccines to counter the genetic variations that occur in the Covid-19 virus.”
