The UAE reported 983 new Covid-19 cases yesterday, making it the lowest daily figure this year.
And in another sign that the UAE is successfully fighting Covid-19 in the country, there were nearly double the number of recoveries at 1,583.
To date, the country has recorded 712,411 cases, 695,843 recoveries and 2,028 deaths since the first Covid-19 case was detected in the Emirates on January 29 last year.
And the recent numbers, including the lowest daily total for nearly nine months, means things are looking good as the UAE comes out of the summer.

The reduced daily infections are thanks to the high vaccination rate, an effective test and trace system and the safety measures in place.
The UAE has one of the most highly vaccinated populations in the world.
85.33 per cent of the population have now received one dose and 74.79 per cent are fully vaccinated.
