The Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee for the Covid-19 Pandemic has announced a decreased Covid-19 infection rate in Abu Dhabi emirate of 0.2 per cent of total tests.

This follows the implementation of the emirate’s strategy to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, and successes resulting from rigorous implementation of thorough precautionary and preventive measures.

Abu Dhabi emirate’s strategic measures include intensified vaccination campaigns aimed at all community members; targeted campaigns for vulnerable categories; continuous pro-active screening campaigns for all community members; and a comprehensive epidemiological tracing system for positive cases and those in contact.

The measures also include safety protocols across vital sectors including education, businesses and government services; activation of the green pass system to access some public places; evaluated occupancy rates in public places and strict supervision of adherence to precautionary measures; use of advanced technology to detect infection, including EDE scanners; and strict policies in place for violators.

The committee thanks the public for their continuous support and adherence to precautionary and preventive measures and urges ongoing commitment to maintain exemplary response efforts and achieve a full and sustainable recovery.
