Dubai One TV

There has been a spike in new COVID-19 cases in the UAE, mainly after the Eid Al Fitr holidays.

Dr. Farida Al Hosani, the official spokesperson of the UAE Health Sector, said non-compliance with safety measures and large gatherings were the main reasons.

She has urged people not to be complacent and to follow all safety guidelines during the summer holidays and Eid Al Adha break.

During the latest government media briefing, Dr. Al Hosani reminded everyone to comply with the precautionary measures and maintain social distancing, even if they are fully vaccinated.

The official added that various government and local entities in the UAE have implemented 33 national projects since the outbreak of the pandemic and have taken part in more than 400 medical and scientific studies in order to combat the spread of the virus.
