The United Arab Emirates pledged to provide 10 million food parcels and meals to communities badly affected by the coronavirus crisis, Vice President Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum said on Twitter.

The Gulf state has nearly 7,000 confirmed coronavirus cases and 41 deaths to date, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University. It is the second-worst affected country in the region with only its much-larger neighbor, Saudi Arabia, reporting more cases.

The UAE also threatened to review labor ties with countries refusing to repatriate migrant workers. Often from countries like India, Pakistan, and Nepal, migrant workers in the UAE form the backbone of the construction industry and often live in cramped, overcrowded accommodation.
