The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) recorded 3, 236 new coronavirus cases on Tuesday.
In addition to the new cases, 3,634 individuals have recovered and 14 people passed away.
Using state-of-the-art medical testing equipment, the ministry carried out 193,163 additional coronavirus cases in the last 24 hours.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Ministry stressed its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The UAE has recorded 355,131 positive coronavirus cases, 340,365 people have recovered and 1,041 people passed away.
MoHAP also noted that an additional 1,674 individuals had fully recovered from COVID-19, bringing the total number of recoveries to 924,192.
The authorities said, “In light of the high number of injuries in the country compared to the past months and weeks, we affirm the stability of the health and medical situation in all state hospitals, as more than 55% of hospital beds and intensive care beds in the country are vacant. And the household occupancy rate for Covid-19 does not exceed 3%.”
The experts also announced that 60,059 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered in the past 24 hours.
A video clip of Egyptian couple riding e-scooters to their wedding venue has gone viral on social media. The video showed the couple, each riding a e-scooter, and behind them were the cars celebrating their marriage in Giza Governorate.
Of those hurt in the accident, 138 sustained minor injuries and a further 24 were still in hospital, the health ministry said. The blast blew out the windows of several houses in the surrounding area and damaged their interiors.
The initiative is inspired by the pioneering success of Dubai Police’s Smart Police Stations (SPS), which provide security and community services around the clock, without human intervention.
The meeting addressed cooperation between the UAE and the Comoros and opportunities to advance ties in the economic, trade, investment, and development fields to achieve the aspirations of the two countries and peoples.
