The United Arab Emirates has reported about 994 new cases of COVID-19 on Saturday, August 6, after an additional tests of 219,958 people were carried out.

This brings the overall number of cases in the country since the beginning of the pandemic to 997,769.


No related deaths were reported, and the number remained at 2,337. The recovery rate increased to 976,628, with 1,038 more people being recovered.

Over 178 million PCR tests have also been conducted since the pandemic’s beginning.

Daily cases have reduced gradually throughout last month and in this month after a rise in infections in June.

Case numbers rose to 1800 on July 3, having fallen to below 200 in early May, but have now stayed at fewer than 1500 per day for over two weeks.

On Friday, August 5, 998 new coronavirus cases were reported, the lowest per day cases since June.

Authorities have asked the public to stay dedicated towards safety measures, like isolating after a positive test and wearing face masks when needed, in order to help support the nation’s coronavirus recovery strategy.


Moreover, the findings of a study released on Thursday, August 4, show one in eight persons who contract coronavirus get at least one symptom of long Covid.

In one of the most complex studies on the condition, the research evaluated long Covid sufferers with individuals who have never been infected, making it likely that some health issues were not resulted because of the virus.

The study, which was published in The Lancet Journal, found that of those with COVID-19, over 21% had at least one new or seriously raised symptom three to five months after becoming infected with the coronavirus.

But around 9% of a control group who didn’t have Covid also reported a similar increase.
