This is how UAE quarantines and isolates patients with coronavirus

-

A medical practitioner in UAE has recently explained what it’s like to be quarantined and isolated in UAE when a person catches Covid-19.

In an TV interview with Marwan Al Hel, Dr. Adil Al Sajwani, a family medicine specialist at the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MOHAP), differentiated quarantine and isolation.

He said that isolation is for patients infected with the new virus while quarantine is for individuals who had had contacts with infected people.

Covid-19 patients are isolated from other patients.

“Isolation is separation of ill persons who have a communicable disease from those who are healthy, so they can start the treatment journey without infecting others. Quarantine is restriction of movement of those who may have been exposed to a communicable disease, but do not have a confirmed medical diagnosis to ensure they are not infected,” MOHAP explained on a Twitter post.

Explaining the procedure, Dr. Adil said that MOHAP makes sure that patients are recovering while following top international medical standards.

“We put them in sterile rooms with ventilation and negative pressure systems where the air enters the room and exits from especial exhausts to make sure the virus does not spread,” he added.

While being treated, patients are required to wear customized, sterile, protective clothes and masks until they have fully recovered and ready to go home.

“Quarantine at homes is a global strategy to reduce the spread of rapidly communicable diseases, and it is important,” Dr. Adil.
