Sharjah will soon be going to inaugurate a field hospital in the “Special Tasks Camp” in Al Zahia area in Sharjah, which will cater exclusively to the COVID-19 patients.
This was announced by Major General Saif Al Zari Al Shamsi, Commander in Chief of Sharjah Police and Head of the Local Emergency and Crisis Team, during the Direct Line programme aired on Sharjah Radio & TV.
The move is aimed to receive cases infected with COVID-19 that need intense attention, whether inside or outside the emirate, in cooperation with the Ministry of Health (MoH).
Al Zari added that the field hospital is a general government approach at the level of the UAE and that it will be designated to receive people with COVID-19, with emergency cases, if the numbers are large.
The field hospital, according to Al Zari, will be ready within a month.
He stressed that corona infections among citizens do not constitute a large percentage compared to other communities, saying: “We are working intensively to educate non-Arabic-speaking nationalities on the pandemic.”
He pointed out that the demand for receiving the vaccine is very high in all centres in the emirate, adding that the current stage requires the integration of roles among all members of the society to combat the corona pandemic and overcome it.
The test will be done on fully automated and highly sophisticated system using the Electro-chemiluminescence immunoassay (ECLIA) method that uses plasma, or serum samples.
