The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Sunday reported 211 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 352 recoveries.
One new death was also reported.
As many as 47,000 new Covid-19 tests have also been carried out, the ministry added.
The ministry affirmed its aim to continue expanding the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate the early detection of coronavirus cases and carry out the necessary treatment.
The UAE has stolen a march over other countries in the quest for a vaccine against Covid-19 with the launch of the final phase 3 human trials. Coordination is underway to open registration for nationals and residents across the UAE who wish to volunteer for Phase III clinical trials of inactivated vaccine. The clinical trial will last for about three to six months. The trails will rope in 15,000 volunteers to further test the safety and efficacy of the vaccine.  
Meanwhile, prayer rooms at malls and shopping centres in the UAE are all set to reopen at 30 percent capacity from Monday, July 20 as the country further eases measures earlier imposed to control the spread of coronavirus. And in Sharjah, government employees returned to work at 100 per cent capacity from today as part of the comprehensive plan for the gradual return to normal life in the emirate, following all the intensified precautionary measures.
Authorities have now mandated that individuals and communities need to continue to adhere to strict safety measures, with violators facing hefty fines and even jail terms for repeat non-compliance.
