Covid-19 deaths, critical cases in UAE decrease significantly


- Advertisment -

The mortality rate from the Covid-19 in the UAE has significantly decreased as the country administered close to 10.5 million doses of the vaccine against the virus, with a rate of 105.23 doses per 100 people. As of April 29, close to four million UAE residents have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19. 

The death rate from the deadly virus is 0.3 percent, which is much below the global average of 2.1 percent. From April, the country, on average, reported under three deaths daily. This is a significant dip from the average 13 daily deaths reports in February, and nine in March. 

UAE, in January, was reported an average of six deaths per day. The country saw massive daily deaths caused by the virus this year on February 19, when 20 residents succumbed to the disease. 

The country’s Covid-19 deaths have dipped as it gets closer to achieving herd immunity. 

A study published by the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre (ADPHC) revealed that very few fully vaccinated residents contract the virus. Not a single person died from among those who tested positive after receiving their second Covid-19 vaccine dose. 

The study further showed that in the event of an infection after vaccination, patients have mild symptoms and do not require admission to hospital  or an intensive care unit (ICU). 

“Patients who come to the hospital for admission are already in the moderate or severe category. Instant initiation of treatment as per protocol plays a major role in preventing mortality,” Dr Vikas Bhagat, HOD – Critical Care Medicine, Aster Hospital, Mankhool, told Khaleej Times. 

The Global Filipino Magazine is the only Filipino magazine in the UAE that prints on a monthly basis. Its goal is to champion the success of every global Filipino across the globe.
