There have also been 170 coronavirus recoveries



The UAE has confirmed 376 new cases of COVID-19, while four patients have died and another 170 have recovered.

According to the Ministry of Health and Prevention, the latest cases were detected through intensified investigation and examination procedures.

All of the new cases are in stable condition and are receiving necessary treatment, the ministry said.

This brings the total number of cases diagnosed in the country to 3, 736, while there have been 588 recoveries and 20 deaths so far.

During the daily press briefing, Dr Farida Al Hosani, official spokesperson for the UAE health sector, revealed that the UAE health authorities have conducted another 20,000 new COVID-19 tests.

“Thanks to the accelerated investigative and check-up measures, we can detect more cases, quarantine infected ones and contacts, which would help reduce the spread of the virus. Today, we have 13 drive-through COVID-19 testing centres across the UAE, in addition to the several health centers, which receive individuals for screening and examination, Al Hosani underlined.

She emphasised that the obvious increase in number of recoveries is attributed to the nature of the recorded cases, which are mostly simple that recover from the disease symptoms automatically after two to 3 weeks.

Al Hosani highlighted that some preliminary studies have proven the effectiveness of a number of drugs such as chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, which are already used in the country, in addition to other antiviral drugs.
