All individuals who are not vaccinated against Covid-19 must present a negative PCR test result to visit federal government departments and ministries in the UAE. The test must have been taken within 48 hours of the visit.
The new rule is effective from August 1, the Federal Authority for Government Human Resources (FAHR) said on Thursday.
Meanwhile, Sanofi SA and GlaxoSmithKline Plc have received an approval from Indian authorities for a late-stage clinical trial of their protein-based Covid-19 vaccine candidate, the drugmakers said on Thursday.
France's Sanofi and Britain's GSK in May kicked off global trials to include more than 35,000 adults to test the shot. They hope to get approvals by the end of 2021 after early-stage results showed the vaccine produces a robust immune response.
