"The UAE is proud of our citizens and residents living on our soil. We are proud they (residents) share with us our identity. I was moved to tears when I heard our residents chanting the National Anthem of the UAE on social media platforms as the National Disinfection Programme was being carried out nationwide."

Positive developments

"These are all optimism-inspiring developments that assure us all that we will eventually defeat this virus."

> Compliance to the strict measures taken against the virus
