UAE daily COVID-19 numbers continue to decline as country readies for Expo 2020 kickoff

UAE health officials confirmed on Friday that 303 new infections and three virus-related deaths, in a time daily coronavirus cases continue to decline.

The country’s COVID-19 total number of cases recorded since the start of the pandemic now stands at 734,275 with 2,086 fatalities related to the disease.

The government’s inoculation program, coupled with an active testing policy for the early detection and intervention for coronavirus cases, has provided at least a dose of COVID-19 vaccines to 90.8 percent of the UAE population.

The recent decline in daily infections comes just days before the opening of the Expo 2020 Dubai, which the emirate hopes will draw millions from around the globe.
