If there’s one thing UAE citizens and residents can be assured, it’s about the safety precautions the country is taking to reduce the risk of the Coronavirus outbreak.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention announced it’s among the first five nations “that stocked up sufficient quantities of materials required for state-of-the-art checkups to detect the Coronavirus.”

The UAE is also closely communicating with the World Health Organization (WHO) on the latest developments of the illness.


”More than 500 staff members work round the clock on communication, medical investigations and logistical support related to combatting the virus.”
