The UAE has administered 59,818 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in the past 24 hours.

This takes the rate of doses to 190.8 per 100 people.
Fully vaccinated holders of valid UAE residence visas, who have received WHO-approved jabs, will be allowed to return from countries previously on the suspended list from September 12, authorities have announced.
The Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship (ICA) and the National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) on Friday said that even resident visa holders who have stayed out of the country for more than six months can now return.
