The UAE has been witnessing a gradual decline in the number of Covid-19 infections over the past few weeks.

The UAE has vaccinated 35,674 residents against Covid-19 in the last 24 hours.

The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stands at 6.20 million. This takes the rate of doses per 100 people to 62.73.

The British government will fund what it believes to be the world's first study assessing the effectiveness of a third dose of vaccine to combat Covid-19, the UK Budget revealed on Wednesday.

The government is committing £22 million (Dh112 million) to studies that test the effectiveness of a combination of different Covid-19 vaccines.

Russia said Thursday it will be able to provide its Sputnik V coronavirus vaccine for 50 million Europeans from June if it is approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Meanwhile, Bharat Biotech on Wednesday announced the first interim analysis of Covaxin, which shows the efficacy of the Covid-19 vaccine to be at 81 per cent.

The trials involved 25,800 subjects, the largest ever conducted in India.
