Residents are urged to follow all preventive measures put in place by the authorities.
The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Wednesday reported 402 new cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 594 new recoveries.
This brings the total number of cases to 49,069 and the total recoveries to 38,160.
One death was also announced in the country as a result of the illness, bringing the total number of deaths to 316.
Different side/after-effects of a Covid-19 infection have been noticed in different patients, said Dr Farida Al Hosani, Official Spokesperson for the UAE Health Sector.
Worshippers were back at UAE mosques today morning 107 days after all places of worship were closed in the country to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and protect the masses.
The UAE had earlier this week announced that mosques and other places of worship will reopen at 30 per cent capacity. However, Friday prayers will remain suspended.
The Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai yesterday announced a list of 770 mosques scheduled to reopen on Wednesday. The mosques include 25 in Hatta, 13 in Al Lisaili area, two in Al Faqaa area, 12 in Al Habab 1 and 2 areas, four in Al Marmum, six in Nad Al Sheba, five in Jebel Ali 1, nine in Jumeirah, five in Al Jaddaf and 20 mosques in the Awir area. A total of 19 mosques will reopen in Al Qusais, eight in Nahda 1 and 2; seven in Wadi Al Amardi, five in Dubai International Airport, 24 mosques in Al Rashidiya, five in Al Garhoud, 29 in Barsha 2 and 3, 13 in Al Barsha (south) 1, 2 and 4.
Yesterday, authorities also announced that children under 12 years of age don't need to take a Covid-19 test to enter Abu Dhabi. As Khaleej Times reported on Monday, UAE residents and visitors should have received a Covid-negative result 48 hours prior to their visit. Residents and visitors don't need a movement permit to travel to the capital; they just need to show the test results via the AlHosn app or as a text message from any hospital or screening centre in the UAE affiliated to the National Screening Programme.
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) has also clarified that UAE residents currently in India need to obtain travel approvals from the ICA and there is no other special NOC required. Humanitarian cases will continue to get precedence.
