More than 50,000 new Covid-19 tests have also been carried out in the country, the health ministry said.

The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday reported cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with recoveries. Two deaths were also reported.

More than 50,000 new Covid-19 tests have also been carried out in the country, the ministry said.

While Covid-19 is raging across the world and cases are nearing the 13 million mark, the UAE is showing the way in the fight against the pandemic through its proactive steps. The UAE has introduced one of the world's most comprehensive testing and tracing regimes early on. With accelerated mass testing, the country has managed to carry out around four million Covid-19 tests in record time. Looking to perform another two million more tests in next two months, the country is on its way to achieving yet another milestone.

To further ease the pressures of the pandemic on the public, Dubai has announced a new Dh1.5-billion stimulus package. This is the third package announced by the emirate, taking the total stimulus to Dh6.3 billion.

Meanwhile, Dubai's flagship carrier Emirates has announced 10 daily repatriation flights to five Indian cities - Bengaluru, Delhi, Kochi, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.

In a major development, the government has announced that the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) will receive applications for renewing expired residency visas and Emirates ID cards in phases. Starting Sunday, July 12, the authority will receive applications for renewing documents that expired in March and April. The residency documents that expired in May will be processed from August 8, while those that expired in June and on July 1-11 will be processed from September 10.
