For the first time since mid-April, the UAE reports zero Coronavirus deaths while the number of cases continue going downhill, confirming 275 cases.
Zero Coronavirus deaths in the UAE since mid-April
Five months into the pandemic, the UAE rolled out a series of initiatives to eliminate the virus, such as the National Sterilization Program, massive testing nation-wide testing centres, field hospitals, air travel closures and strict quarantine measures enforced with police officers raiding the streets.
Last month saw the Coronavirus curve flatten with the number of cases going down from the mid-800s down to the mid-200s, and at last, it’s a moment of pride for the UAE announcing its first day of zero deaths since mid-April.
UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention reported a total of 55,848 cases, 46,418 recoveries and 335 deaths so far.
