The UAE’s COVID-19 death toll now sits at 1,916, according to the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority (NCEMA).
Total diagnosed cases since the pandemic’s onset climbed to 670,108 and total recoveries rose to 647,682.
There are now 20,510 active infections within the country.
The country’s vaccination program has been among the best and most efficient in the world, with over 16.4 million doses already administered, according to NCEMA, and over 68 percent of the population fully inoculated against the virus.
COVID-19 data from Reuters suggests that the UAE’s vaccination drive currently averages at 57,484 doses administered per day, meaning that it would take a further 34 days to administer enough doses to inoculate another 10 percent of the population if it continues to vaccinate at this rate.
