MoHAP also announced three deaths due to COVID-19 complications, bringing the total number of deaths in the country to 387.
The Health Ministry expressed its sincere condolences to the families of the deceased and wished COVID-19 patients a speedy and full recovery, calling on all members of the society to cooperate with health authorities, adhere to the instructions and physical distance to ensure the health and safety of all.
MoHAP also noted an additional 538 individuals had fully recovered from COVID-19, bringing the total number of recoveries to 62,029.
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.
The authorities said that they have registered 736 recoveries in the past 24 hours among the previous infected patients.
“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…”
