The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) reported 277 new cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country, bringing the total to 2,076.

MoHap spokesperson Dr. Farida Al Hosani, in a media briefing for the latest COVID-19 updates held earlier, assured the public that the increase in numbers is due to UAE’s continuous large monitoring, enabling the ministry to discover more cases and limit the spread of the virus.

She also stated that the expansion of medical examination procedures for all citizens and residents enhances the success of the country to contain all those who are infected leading towards the eventual elimination of the strain of the virus.

MoHAP reported that the majority of these cases were those who did not follow proper quarantine procedures and proper social distancing.

The country also reported 23 patients who have recovered, bringing the the total number of COVID-19 recoveries in the country now to 167.

MoHAP advises the general public to adhere to the preventative health and personal hygiene measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic.

It noted basic protective measures such as the frequent washing of hands, covering the mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing with a tissue or into one’s elbow, and to seek early medical care if symptoms of fever, cough and difficulty in breathing arise.

The Ministry also advised individuals with respiratory illness symptoms to avoid mixing in crowded places. It also called on members of the public to seek information from official sources and avoid spreading misinformation.
