Current situation in UAE
Posting to social media, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid said he had been informed about the latest situation during a Cabinet meeting.
He noted that “the UAE worked as one team during the pandemic”, which resulted in the country’s response to the crisis being one of the best in the world.
Furthermore: “We also approved today the regulations governing medical and pharmaceutical products in the country.The goal is to ensure the presence and quality of all our national medical needs throughout the year, and in all regions of the country.”
Easing Restrictions In The UAE
Since the beginning of the vaccination drive, restrictions imposed on residents as a result of the pandemic have been gradually easing and life is slowly but surely getting “back to normal”.
Since the 9th of August, recoveries have been outweighing new case figures which is a really great indicator. More than 75% of the UAE population is now fully vaccinated with more than 18 million doses administered across the country.
This week, schools have began their new academic year, with a number of them beginning in-person learning. From October, pupils in Dubai have been told that all lessons will need to be attended on site, whereas other emirates will be allowing unvaccinated children to continue with remote learning.
