The UAE has made it clear that no case of Coronavirus infection has been found in the country.
The two new patients who had recovered were also Chinese citizens, a 41-year old man, and his son, who was eight years of age, the ministry said.
The announcement follows the directives issued by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces.
Tough punishment awaits individuals found guilty of spreading misinformation and disinformation that impinge on the reputation and national security of the UAE such as those regarding the current global concern on Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The whole world is going through a horrible situation: number one, the fear of death because of coronavirus, plus unbearable losses to the world economy because of lockdown in many parts of the world.
The UAE authorities have been doing their best to protect one and all in the country from the deadly COVID-19 pandemic and the extension of the National Disinfection Programme until April 4 is an appropriate step that indicates nothing is left to chance in the fight against coronavirus.
In just a few short weeks, the COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the vulnerability we share as a society. We’ve adopted drastic measures to attempt to prevent a tidal wave of sickness and death.
