The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention on Saturday reported 1,632 cases of the Covid-19 coronavirus, along with 1,561 recoveries and six deaths. More than 58.3 million Covid-19 tests have been carried out in the country so far.
On Sunday, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (Mohap) announced the approval of the emergency registration of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine.
There were previously four vaccines in the UAE for use against the Covid-19 infection: one by Sinopharm, the other by Pfizer-BioNTech, the third by Sputnik V and the latest by Oxford-AstraZeneca.
The UAE is offering these vaccines to its citizens and residents free of charge and on an optional basis after ensuring that the person has no condition or symptom that makes it inadvisable.
