The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Monday reported 92 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 71 recoveries and no deaths.

Over 104.9 million PCR tests have been conducted in the country so far.

The new cases were detected through 245,149 additional tests.

The total number of cases in UAE as on December 13 are 742,894, while total recoveries stand at 737,967. The death toll now stands at 2,151.

Soon, fully-vaccinated UAE residents, who hold a vaccination certificate issued by relevant authorities, can travel to the European Union member states without restrictions.

The UAE has been connected to the European Union’s Digital Covid Certificate system, making it easier for vaccinated nationals and residents in the Emirates to travel to EU member states.

The UAE is one of the first countries in the Mena region to achieve this.

The Digital Pass was launched over the summer this year, allowing users to travel within Europe. Like the Al Hosn app, users of the EU Digital Covid Certificate can show using a QR code that they are fully vaccinated or have a negative RT-PCR status.
