UAE remain strict in order to protect those living here and people coming from abroad
Abdullah Al Hamed, Chairman of Department of Health Abu Dhabi, said the UAE uses data to gauge when to tighten or relax restrictions.
He said the government monitors 30 separate numbers, including the capacity of hospitals, on a daily basis when making its decisions.
“We go by facts, by numbers, the death toll, the capacity in hospitals,” Mr Al Hamed said.
All of these things have been decided by these numbers.
“We are still taking these measures, even harsher than they should be because we really want to make sure everyone is safe, whether someone is coming from outside the UAE or people who are living in the UAE.”
