The health facilities have also been asked to postpone surgeries that require general anesthesia.

The Ministry of Health and Prevention in the UAE has issued a circular to private health facilities to postpone non-essential surgeries across the country amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The directives are applicable to facilities in Sharjah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah, Umm Al Quwain and Fujairah.

Such health facilities are to postpone surgeries that require general anesthesia and blood transfusion. They also need to stop cosmetic services such as hair removal, botox, fillers and facelift and hair transplantation.

According to a report in Arabic daily Al Bayan, dental treatments and procedures for people suffering from respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, or cold are also advised to be rescheduled.

The circular also included the instructions to delay the provision of five types of health services, including cupping and physiotherapy.
