The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) on Sunday announced the full recovery of an 89-year-old coronavirus patient and his 72-year-old wife after receiving necessary treatment at Al Kuwait Hospital in Dubai.

The husband, who was suffering from pre-existing conditions including diabetes, blood pressure and cardiomyopathy, and his wife were both tested twice and the results were negative in the two tests, using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique.

Thanks to the UAE’s effective healthcare system and the excellent healthcare provided to senior citizens, coupled with the commitment to the global best medical practices, the two patients are now free of any Covid-19 symptoms, the ministry affirmed.

Expressing his happiness with the recovery of the couple, Abdul Rahman Bin Mohammed Al Owais, Minister of Health and Prevention, congratulated the two patients and their family, thanking the medical team at Al Kuwait Hospital for their dedication and sincere efforts being made to offer the best healthcare to all patients.

Al Owais lauded the directives issued by the wise leadership to pay special attention to senior citizens in light of the spread of Covid-19, especially those with chronic diseases, where just recently a humanitarian initiative was launched to provide free Covid-19 testing for senior citizens to ensure their health.
