His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, has urged all UAE residents to comply with all Covid-19 measures and to continue collaborating with all departments which are concerned to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all communities in the UAE.
Speaking during a meeting at Qasr Al Bahr Majlis, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed assured that the UAE health sector is all prepared to address any challenges linked with the new wave of Coronavirus, noting that the emerging Omicron variant will take some time to wither away like the previous one.
"According to experts and specialists, the pandemic comes in waves. However, the new strain is less harmful to human beings though it spreads faster than other variants. Therefore, we have to exercise caution because infections may increase, but God Willing and thanks to the determination of all stakeholders and their collaboration, we will survive the new wave," Sheikh Mohamed said.
"There should be no complacency in ensuring compliance with all preventative and precautionary measures rolled out by health and other competent authorities. God willing, this wave will disappear as was the case with that of the past two years," Sheikh Mohamed concluded.
