UAE reports lowest daily coronavirus cases in over a year

The UAE’s consistent decline in daily Covid-19 cases saw a new milestone on Sunday, September 12. The country recorded 620 cases — its lowest daily infections in more than a year.

The last time cases dipped below 620 was on September 7, 2020, when 470 infections were reported.

The country also did not record any deaths on Sunday — the second time this was achieved in as many weeks. The UAE did not see any deaths on September 2 either — after nearly 10 months. Prior to that, the country saw zero deaths from the coronavirus on November 14, 2020.

At 0.2 per cent, the UAE has one of the lowest death rates from the virus. It is significantly lesser than the global average of just over 2 per cent.
