With over 300 Covid-19 cases each day in UAE, doctor said public should not be alarmed

-

A government doctor said that UAE can flatten the curve and control the spread of the new coronavirus of residents would just follow stay at home protocols.

Family Medicine Specialist at the Ministyr of Health and Prevention (MOHAP) Dr. Adil Sajwani told The National that the country should turn a corner and begin to flatten the curve in the next month.

However, fight against the virus will be prolonged if residents ignore protocols.

“We hope that within three to four weeks, if everyone cooperates, that we will flatten the curve,” Dr. Adil said.

“Flattening the curve depends on the people. If they do not help. the government has to take strong measurement to let them stay home. It will take longer if people do not cooperate,” he added.

With over 300 cases being reported almost each day, the seasoned doctor told the public not be alarmed with the statistics.

“Everyday the number of people is increasing and this is because testing is increasing. Most of the cases are mild and many of them receive no treatment. Only some cases need treatment but, again, we will not reach zero cases soon,” he added.

The country has been reported to take Covid-19 test about 15,000 to 20,000 people per day.

“We are one of the top countries in the world for mass testing… above 600,000 which is very high. It is very important,” he said.
