More than 37,000 new Covid-19 tests have also been conducted across the country, the health ministry added.

The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday announced 661 new cases of Covid-19 infections, 386 cases of recovery and two deaths.

More than 37,000 new Covid-19 tests have also been conducted across the country, the ministry added.

The ministry wished a speedy recovery to all patients, calling on the public to abide by the precautionary measures in place and following all necessary medical advice in order to avoid more infections.

Thanks to rapid setting up of testing centres across the country and their ease of access, the UAE now leads in mass testing per million people and has conducted more than two million tests.

Businesses, public spaces and offices are opening up in the UAE. However, the government has stressed on residents' commitment to precautionary measures to curb the spread of Covid-19.

According to a set of guidelines issued on Saturday, when the government offices reopen in Abu Dhabi, maximum attendance should not exceed 35 per cent of the workplace capacity. Capacity of government entities will be reviewed and updated weekly as per requirements.

Residents are also urged to download the Al Hosn app, which displays people's health status and enables health authorities to identify people at risk of contracting Covid-19. Employees and customers should check their temperature before leaving home.
