Between October 14 and 20, the rate of positive cases among those tested has remained at 1 per cent.

The UAE has seen a "marked increase" in the number of positive and recovered cases, a top official has said. "This rise is a natural and predicted result based on the global pattern, as a result of the gradual return to normal life," said Dr Farida Al Hosni, spokesperson for the UAE health sector.

Between October 14 and 20, the rate of positive cases among those tested has remained at 1 per cent - the lowest compared to the European Union, the Middle East, North Africa and OECD countries.

Compared to last week, the total number of recoveries increased to about 10,000 cases, with a total of 22 deaths. A mortality rate of 0.4 per cent is one of the lowest in the world, said the official.

All individuals and institutions have been urged to take responsibility and to continue implementing the precautionary and preventive measures put in place by the government to overcome "this stage of the pandemic and ensure the health and the safety of society".
