UAE Reports 1,632 New Covid-19 Cases, 6 People Died

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) reported that from 291,676 Covid-19 tests carried out on Saturday (3/7) there were 1,632 new additional cases of Covid-19, of which there were six deaths.

UMMATIMES - As reported by Arab News on Sunday (4/7), the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention said in a statement that the government was continuing to expand the scope of testing nationwide to facilitate early detection of coronavirus cases and implement the necessary treatment protocols. The country's Covid-19 caseload now stands at 637,877, including 1,831 deaths.

Abu Dhabi previously launched the Contact Tracing Assistant System, the first investigation and contact tracing system in the region. This system is designed to conduct virtual chats with positive cases of Covid-19.

The purpose of this system is to expand the scope of Covid-19 investigations to be more comprehensive, help predict and prevent transmission of Covid-19 between community members, and communicate efficiently with positive cases in the shortest possible time.

This system allows the investigation and contact tracing team to gather necessary information, such as who returned from overseas, or workplace, or who has recently been in contact with a positive case, to broaden the investigation process.

It will also ask for a list of possible contacts 48 hours before a positive result. The information obtained will be considered confidential and will not be shared with anyone outside the investigation team. This system is only available in Arabic and English.
