The UAE announced on Wednesday the detection of 85 new coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and the recovery of seven more individuals.
The announcement was made by the Ministry of Health and Prevention during a regular press briefing on Wednesday, wherein Dr. Farida Al Hosani, the official spokesperson for the UAE health sector, highlighted the latest COVID-19 developments in the country and the measures taken by Emirati authorities to combat the spread of the pandemic.
The total number of confirmed cases in the country is 333.
Al Hosani stressed the importance of all UAE citizens and residents staying home unless absolutely necessary and adhering to all the precautionary measures advised by the relevant authorities.
"The detection of one infected case compels the authorities to conduct a necessary investigation among all those in contact with this one case in order to identify the source of the infection and its aftermath. In this we usually detect additional cases. It usually starts with a person coming from abroad who then transmits the virus to others around him or her," she explained.
"The recent precautionary measures announced are aimed at protecting society, with the law to be applied only to violators of the UAE law on communicable diseases, under which violators are subject to jail terms and fines," she warned.
The UAE has called upon the public to stay at home except in cases of necessity, including getting essential supplies, such as food and medicine, or performing jobs.
The total number of coronavirus cases in the UAE is now 74, while 12 people have already recovered.
The ministry also announced that the total number of recovered cases of COVID-19 has reached 680 with 92 cases fully recovered.
