The UAE Health Ministry announced 571 new coronavirus, one death in the country on Wednesday.

The Ministry affirmed its aim to expand the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.

The Ministry said 427 people recovered from the infection, bringing the total recovery cases to 19,153.

The ministry announced a death as a result of Covid-19 complications. The total number of deaths in the country has reached 270.

The total number of infected cases in the UAE jumped to 36,359.


Dr. Amna Al Dahak Al Shamsi, official spokesperson for the UAE Government, emphasized the importance of the coming period, saying that restoring normalcy is contingent upon the public’s full adherence to health measures in place.

"Any negligence or recklessness will lead, God forbid, to dire consequences," she warned.

"Our frontline health workers are spearheading the campaign to limit the spread of COVID-19. They are forging ahead with their heroic work around the clock to ensure our safety. Now that the government and private sectors have re-opened, it has become incumbent on all of us to honour our collective and individual responsibility to ensure full compliance with all preventative measures. We all must honour our responsibility toward ensuring our safety and that of others. We have to continue to protect our homeland, our nation’s development, and our welfare," she concluded.

Addressing the briefing, Dr. Saif Juma Al Dhaheri, Spokesman of the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA), said the UAE has taken additional steps towards restoring normalcy by allowing some of the country's airports to permit the transfer and transit of passengers from other international ports.

"The decision includes Abu Dhabi International Airport, Dubai International Airport, and Sharjah International Port, and covers Etihad Airways, Emirates, flydubai, and Air Arabia," he said, noting that these carriers would announce details on their operations in the coming days.

"The decision has been made following a holistic review by a number of national authorities, including NCEMA, the General Authority of Civil Aviation, and the health sector."
