The number of cases of coronavirus has now reached seven, as two new cases of the disease were reported in the UAE on Saturday.
The two cases were discovered during periodic screening of people with symptoms, reported to be of Chinese and Filipino nationalities.
It comes amid news that the UAE will offer medical treatment, free of charge to patients of coronavirus, regardless of their medical coverage - to ensure the spread is minimised. A circular from the Ministry of Health to hospitals stated that all DHA-licenced facilities must treat suspected and confirmed cases of coronavirus as emergency cases.
Anyone reporting with symptoms of coronavirus which include a dry cough, and influenza-like conditions should seek medical assistance.
