As the world fights the novel coronavirus, the Ruler of Dubai took to Twitter to highlight the importance of the healthcare sector.

The world has long been questioning where the true power lies. Does economy drive politics or the other way around? The coronavirus spread has shown that healthcare is the main power that shapes the economy and politics at a time when a disease brought nations to a standstill.— HH Sheikh Mohammed (@HHShkMohd) April 10, 2020
This comes as the UAE announced 370 new cases, bringing the total number of cases diagnosed in the country to 3,360, of which 2,926 are active.
