The Department of Health, Abu Dhabi, has urged all healthcare facilities to cancel all health events and activities, planned or otherwise, for the months of March, April and May, in a bid to control the spread of the Covid-19 coronavirus.

According to a circular issued by the department to all healthcare facilities, which Khaleej Times has read, the decision was made as part of its efforts to put public benefit as a top priority and to ensure adequate measures against the spread of the epidemic.

The circular also said the decision was made following the increasing number of detected cases in different countries all over the world and in the Middle East.

Presently, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has increased the assessment of the risk spread and risk impact of Covid-19 to very high in the global level.
