The authorities said 8,490 patients are still receiving treatment according to established health protocols.
Dr Omar Al Hammadi, official spokesman for the UAE Government, said, “Since the beginning of August, we have witnessed an increase of about 10 per cent in infections, which was reflected in the increase in the percentage of active cases that are still receiving treatment during the past two weeks, from 9.5 per cent to 12 per cent.
Al Hammadi said, “The death cases from COVID-19 disease in the country remained at their previous rates, at 0.5% of the total cases, thanks to the health care and advanced treatment protocols that the country provides for the injured.
Al Hammadi said, “We have spotted some clips on social media for gatherings and holding parties in some facilities without applying preventive measures, and we call on all members of society to take responsibility for maintaining social distancing and wearing masks.”
MoHAP also noted an additional 538 individuals had fully recovered from COVID-19, bringing the total number of recoveries to 62,029.
“The increase in the number of injuries resulted from non-compliance, and the sterilisation programme may return in some areas if the cases continue to rise…”
The authorities said that they have registered 736 recoveries in the past 24 hours among the previous infected patients.
