The UAE Health Ministry said that quarantined individuals can go out in the event of any health emergency if situation requires.
Dr Farida Al Hosani, Spokesperson for the UAE Health Sector said, “Quarantined individuals can go out in the event of any health emergency, without the need to inform anyone, just go to the nearest hospital and request a medical report as evidence if you faced a penalty.”
The authorities clarified rumours about vaccine shots.
Experts said the vaccine cannot cause a positive result as the approved COVID-19 vaccines do not contain the live virus causing the disease, thus, the vaccine cannot infect you.
Health Sector said it is difficult to determine how long one’s immunity will last, as we just started the vaccination process. The effectiveness may vary from patient to another, depending on their immune response and the type of vaccine they receive.
Authorities said fast medical intervention to assess the disease through medical tests and x-rays is necessary even if the symptoms are mild, as to start treatment early.
In event of any respiratory symptoms appear, you must immediately call 999 or visit the nearest health centre.
