There’s been a massive spike in the number of COVID-19 recovery cases in the UAE but that doesn’t mean the spread of the virus has been curbed.
That’s the message from the government’s official spokesperson, who says we are seeing daily fluctuations in new and recovered cases, and they are mainly linked to people’s commitment to health and safety guidelines.
Dr. Amna Al Dahak Al Shamsi urged everyone to continue following the preventative and social distancing norms, and to adopt a lifestyle that relies on such measures.
She added that the government is continuing to expand its screening programme to reach out to as many people as possible.
Dr. Al Shamsi: Daily fluctuations seen in new and recovered cases of Covid-19 in the UAE and around the world are associated with people’s commitment to health practices and other factors. It should not be taken as an indicator that the spread of Covid-19 has been curbed. #UAEGov— UAEGov (@uaegov) June 10, 2020
