Two Chinese patients who have been diagnosed with coronavirus in the UAE have now fully recovered, bringing the total number of recovered patients to 3 out of eight confirmed cases, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) announced on Friday.
Last week, the ministry announced that Liu Yujia, a 73-year-old woman from China, was the first patient who had recovered fully from the disease.
The two newly recovered patients are Chinese citizens, a 41-year old father, and his 8-year-old son, the ministry said.
The recovery by the patients reflects the efficiency of the health system in the country as the Ministry of Health and Prevention considers the health and safety of UAE citizens and residents a strategic priority which it works on in coordination with the relevant authorities in the national system and harnesses national capabilities and resources.
The Emirates News Agency, WAM, accompanied Consul-General of China to the UAE, Li Xuhang, and Dr. Fatima Al Attar, Head of International Health Regulations at the Ministry, who visited the father and his son, to congratulate them on their complete recovery.
