In a major breakthrough in the fight against Coronavirus pandemic in the UAE, the Sheikh Khalifa Specialty Hospital (SKSH) in the Ras Al Khaimah emirates has announced that all its COVID-19 confirmed patients have recovered from the disease and it has no new virus-related cases.
Speaking over the development, SKSH CEO Dr. Chang Suk Suh stated that the result was achieved due to the remarkable efforts of the UAE's leadership and its constant monitoring of the situation at the ground level ever since the beginning of the crisis. Furthermore, the administration's strategy to support the national testing programme and facilitating virus preventive measures across all regions helped in the early detection of infected cases, following which adequate treatment protocols were adopted leading to increasing patient recoveries.
"The hospital now has no coronavirus cases and is ready to welcome patients," Dr Chang added.
He further lauded the efforts taken by relevant national authorities, volunteers, and medical teams in tackling the health crisis. Dr. Chang went on to assert that the hospital strictly adopted all necessary preventive measures to protect patients, visitors, medical staff, and workers from the virus transmission as soon as the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared the Coronavirus a global pandemic.
The Sheikh Khalifa Specialty Hospital is one of the initiatives of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
As of now, the UAE has reported over 47,700 Coronavirus infected cases, out of whom more than 36,000 people have recovered from the virus with the help of continuous efforts of the UAE leadership and the healthcare professionals working at the forefront in the fight against the pandemic.
