The UAE has revealed 462 new cases of coronavirus as health authorities announced an additional 28,000 Covid-19 tests on Tuesday.

The total number of confirmed cases currently stands at 15,192, while there were a further nine Covid-19-related deaths, of various nationalities, in the country – the death toll to date is 146.

According to the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP), 187 more people recovered from the virus, with the number of recovered cases up to 3,153.

The numbers come as Dubai authorities are intensifying precautionary measures at labour camps to safeguard the health of blue-collar workers amid the outbreak.

As part of the campaign, regular field visits are organised to carry out proactive Covid-19 tests and raise awareness on the virus.

A statement from Dubai Media Office said: “Workers who test positive are quarantined, while those that require medical care are hospitalised at medical facilities that provide the highest level of care. Suspected cases are isolated and subjected to tests to ensure all workers are free of the virus.

“Currently, extensive COVID-19 tests are being conducted at a number of labour camps in Dubai.”
