The Ministry also launched a national awareness platform, including COVID-19 Information Centre, under the theme "Your Health Our Priority" .

The move comes as part of the precautionary and preventive measures taken by the UAE government to battle the spread of COVID-19 and to strengthen the mechanism for assessing health cases, as well as to curb the spread of myths and misinformation.

As a health database, the platform is featuring all the recommendations, precautions, and guidelines of the World Health Organisation, WHO, as well as the UAE’s health authorities to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to limit the spread of unreliable and false information.

The "Your Health Our Priority" Platform will also help alleviate the flow of patients with normal cold or flu symptoms to health facilities in light of the current circumstances.

Provided in five languages, the COVID-19 Information Centre is featuring the "Virtual Doctor" service which helps those wishing to assess their health conditions if they suffer from symptoms similar to COVID-19.

Divided into six main sections providing scientific and health information, the virtual information centre is also an awareness platform featuring the latest information about the virus and ways to prevent it, as well as showing the updated stats on the number of infected cases in the UAE.
