Coronavirus: UAE reports 725 Covid-19 cases, 2,391 recoveries, 1 death


Abu Dhabi: The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday reported 725 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 2,391 recoveries and one death.

One more COVID-19 fatality has been confirmed, taking the country’s death toll at 2,294. A total of 2,391 COVID-19 patients has also made full recovery, bringing the overall recoveries to 818,381.

The newly detected infections were identified after conducting 338,195 PCR tests across the country.

The ministry expressed its condolences to the family of the deceased and wished patients speedy recovery, urging the public to cooperate with health authorities and comply with precautionary measures, particularly social distancing protocols, to ensure the safety and protection of the public.

Over 133.8 million PCR tests have been conducted in the country so far.

Total active cases stand at 53,932.

The new cases were detected through 338,195 additional tests.

The total number of cases in UAE as on February 20 are 874,607, while total recoveries stand at 818,381. The death toll now stands at 2,294.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson intends to set out plans next week to remove self-isolation requirements for people infected with Covid-19, his office said on Saturday.

Britain would become the first major European country to allow people who know they are infected with Covid-19 to freely use shops, public transport and go to work — a move many of his health advisors think is risky.

“Covid will not suddenly disappear, and we need to learn to live with this virus and continue to protect ourselves without restricting our freedoms,” Johnson said in a statement.

Johnson will also give more details on how Britain will guard against future coronavirus variants through ongoing surveillance, amid reports that the government wants to end free testing and scale back public health studies.
