The stem cell treatment has been developed by a team of doctors and researchers at the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center.

UAE President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, have congratulated the UAE people for the scientific achievement of developing potential treatment for Covid-19 infections.

The stem cell treatment has been developed by a team of doctors and researchers at the Abu Dhabi Stem Cell Center (ADSCC).

It involves extracting stem cells from the patient's own blood and reintroducing them after activating them.

Their Highnesses thanked, on behalf of the people of the UAE, the team of doctors, researchers and support staff at ADSCC for their efforts in making this scientific breakthrough which, they said, will add to the global efforts to contain the spread of Covid-19 and ensure the health and safety of the people of the world.

They emphasised that people's health and safety are given top priority in the UAE's plans and strategies and that the country will continue to enhance its proactive measures and initiatives to ensure the safety of its citizens, residents and visitors.

Their Highnesses also underlined the early precautionary and preventive measures taken by the UAE since the beginning of the coronavirus crisis.

They praised the efforts of all sectors and entities and their staff for performing their duties at the highest possible level of efficiency, responsibility and professionalism in these critical times.

They paid special tribute to the front-line heroes of healthcare professionals, including nurses, doctors, and paramedics.

The UAE leaders' praise, which was conveyed in a tweet from the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA), endorses that of the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP).

In a statement on Friday, MOHAP said: "The Ministry is following with great attention the developments of this breakthrough and fully supports the earnest efforts being made by the team of scientists and medical experts from the Ministry and the academia to provide treatment to Covid-19 patients."

As part of the UAE's desire to protect public health and to ensure recover and well-being of Covid-19 patients, ADSCC conducted medical experiments on cell therapy, regenerative medicine and cutting-edge research on stem cells with encouraging results.

This scientific breakthrough is a testament to the UAE's commitment to bring an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.
