The UAE has announced 15 new cases of coronavirus, bringing the total number of people infected by the virus in the country to 113.

The new cases include individuals from Kyrgyzstan, Serbia, Italy, the Netherlands, Australia, Germany, USA, Greece, Russia, Ukraine, and Bangladesh, in addition to two people each from Britain and Spain.

“The new cases have been detected through the ministry’s early monitoring and reporting system and after examining those who had been in close contact with already confirmed cases in addition to individuals coming from abroad who had been all under quarantine,” the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHaP) said in a statement.

“All those in close contact with the confirmed cases are being screened to avert spreading of the disease and ensure public safety. Full coordination channels are maintained with all health and other concerned authorities in the country through a very effective epidemiological monitoring mechanism,” the statement added.

The UAE has implemented a range of preventative measures in recent weeks, including temporarily closing schools, bars, pubs and lounges, massage parlours and spas and cancelling prayers in places of worship.

On Tuesday, Bahrain recorded seven new cases, while there were 11 confirmed cases in Kuwait.
