The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Friday announced 513 new cases of Covid-19 infections, 712 cases of recovery and 1 death.

Total number of infections as of June 12 stand at 41,499 (15,266 active cases), while recoveries increased to 25,946. Death toll stands at 287.

The ministry has affirmed its aim to expand the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.

A huge spike in single-day recoveries of Covid-19 patients over the past few days could indicate the UAE is on the road to early recovery from the pandemic. Recoveries have doubled in the past three weeks, which spells good news in the fight against the disease that has claimed more than 400,000 lives globally. There are more than 7 million cases across the world, including 2 million in the United States alone.
