Two new cases of coronavirus infections have been announced in UAE, the state news agency WAM reported, citing the Ministry of Health and Prevention.
The cases were discovered through a routine check-up system set according to standards by the World Health Organization, raising the total number of cases to seven in the UAE.
The two new patients, a Chinese national and a Filipino, are receiving medical care, WAM reported, without giving further details.
A four-member family, who arrived from Wuhan for a holiday in Dubai, last month were diagnosed with coronavirus. A fifth patient, who also arrived from the Chinese city, was also confirmed to have been infected with the virus, but is reportedly in a stable condition.
