The UAE has conducted more than two million tests so far, making the nation a world leader in terms of Covid-19 tests carried out per million of population.
The country is testing 213,636 people in a million, with the daily testing average equalling the four-month average in other countries. The UAE is way ahead of even developed countries. The country quickly ramped up its testing infrastructure, and has managed to control the spread effectively.
Meanwhile, Dubai's beaches and parks will reopen from today while the culturally inclined can visit the city's museums from June 1. It will, however, be a phased reopening for museums with only 50 per cent visitors permitted entry. This follows the Dubai Government's decision to resume economic activity from 6am to 11pm from Wednesday.
Sterilisation routines will be strictly followed, and as part of social distancing rules, visitors will be asked to maintain a distance of two metres from other people.
