The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Monday reported 215 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 358 recoveries and no deaths.

The Philippines on Monday started giving second Covid-19 booster doses for immunocompromised adults, joining a growing number Asian countries offering a fourth vaccine shot.

Nearly 61 per cent of the Philippines' 110 million population have been vaccinated, while nearly 13 million people have received first booster doses, government data show.

Of 690,000 people deemed most vulnerable, between 7,000 and 13,000 have been initially targeted for the second round of boosters, to increase protection against Covid and its variants.

"Because of increasing vaccination coverage, while Covid-19 is still there, in the near future we can consider this as an endemic disease," Health Secretary Francisco Duque told a public forum.
