More than 13.3 million Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the UAE so far.

The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Tuesday reported 1,008 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 1,466 recoveries. Six deaths were also reported.

As many as 96,994 new Covid-19 tests were carried out, taking the total to nearly 13.3 million tests so far.

A team of researchers at Khalifa University of Science and Technology has designed a reusable 3D-printed mask as a potential replacement for standard N95 masks that are in short supply amid the Covid-19 pandemic. The modular design also allows for easy cleaning and sterilisation as well as replacing filters which are made of non-woven fabric and meltdown fabric. Medically graded materials were used in the manufacture of the components.

As the Indian festival of lights approaches, the community has been advised to strictly adhere to social distancing norms and avoid large gatherings. The authorities also warned people against visiting each other’s homes and exchanging sweets and gifts, saying such practices could increase the risk of spreading coronavirus. They advised to avoid crowded places and strictly adhere to precautionary measures, including maintaining physical distancing and using face masks.”

Late last week, Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management listed out the safety guidelines for Diwali and other festivities. It emphasised that the elderly and those with chronic conditions should not attend social functions.
