The authority confirmed that all those who were in contact with the patient have tested negative.

This brings the total number of confirmed cases in the Emirates to 86 (63 of them are active), while the number of recovered cases has gone up to 23.

Two Emiratis and an Indian are the latest to be cleared. The Ministry said the three of them are now "symptom-free" after receiving the necessary treatment.
