Rise in Covid-19 cases: UAE police, doctors issue advisory for residents

Published on January 23 2021

Dr Abdul Aneez, assistant medical director at Medeor Hospital, Dubai, said: “The UAE is setting a new model through a massive vaccination drive. Getting vaccinated is our responsibility to keep ourselves and the community safe by developing herd immunity against the virus.” 


Dr Aneez highlighted that vaccinated people must continue to follow precautionary measures. “Vaccination should not be construed as a reason to let guards down, thinking the virus is under control. The public should continue with their masks, hand washing, social distancing and other disinfection measures at all times, until we get a lasting, permanent solution.”
