The UAE has administered 19,852 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in the past 24 hours.

The country's Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) said the total doses administered now stand at 21.5 million.

This takes the rate of doses to 218.13 per 100 people.

International students are returning to US colleges in stronger numbers this year, but the rebound has yet to make up for last year’s historic declines as Covid-19 continues to disrupt academic exchange, according to a new survey.

Nationwide, American colleges and universities saw a 4 per cent annual increase in international students this fall, according to survey results released Monday by the Institute of International Education. But that follows a decrease of 15 per cent last year — the steepest decline since the institute began publishing data in 1948.

Indian expatriate parents with children under the age of five have said they are relieved following India’s decision to do away with Covid-19 PCR testing for their kids. According to UAE-based paediatricians, the downward trend of Covid cases among the adult population in India could be one of the primary reasons for this decision.

Given the latest updates, agents have said that several Indian families who had refused to fly home due to the PCR testing requirement have renewed their travel plans.
