DUBAI: The UAE announced a new coronavirus case on Monday bringing the number of those infected in the Emirates to eight.
The latest case is an Indian national who had been in recent contact with one of the other cases, the Ministry of Health and Prevention said.
Five Chinese and two Filipinos had already had the coronavirus diagnosed.
The ministry said all the cases were in a stable condition apart from one who was being treated in an intensive care unit “under close observation by a team of senior consultants.”
On Sunday, the ministry said 73-year-old Liu Yujia from China had made a full recovery.
“We assure members of the community that we are taking all adequate preventive measures including check-ups and observation of the patients’ escorts,” it added.
