The total number of Covid-19 cases reached 204,369, while recoveries reached 181,400. The country has also seen 662 deaths.

In line with the distinction, Dr. Omar Al Hammadi, the official spokesperson for the UAE Government, noted the country has provided breakthrough technology to help in the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of individuals who have contracted the disease.

“The UAE has applied the highest scientific standards in its treatment of Covid19, surpassing all countries in the Middle East and Africa, and is rated as tenth in the world in its effectiveness of treating the virus,” he said.

Among the innovative tools utilized by the UAE to help detect and treat COVID-19 include stem cell therapy, plasma, and laser technology.

The UAE used laser technology to diagnose the Covid19 disease, and it was one of the first countries to use plasma and stem cell therapy to stimulate recovery,” read the statement from the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA).

To date, the UAE has achieved over 20.5 million tests – a combined total from both PCR and DPI tests as a testament to the country’s aim to track and curb the spread of the disease.

Thanks to the vision of our leadership, the UAE was a global example to follow in its response to the crisis, and it dealt with the epidemic using a holistic approach which contributed to limiting its spread and reducing its impact on all sectors of the state,” the NCEMA added.
