Dr. Taher Al Ameri, Official Spokesman of the National Crisis and Emergency Management Authority (NCEMA) highlighted the need for members of the community to adhere to the preventive measures adopted by the country during their travels and holidays and the necessity of following the precautionary measures implemented by relevant authorities amidst the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in many countries.

During the UAE Government media briefing on the COVID-19 pandemic, Al Ameri urged Emirati citizens and residents wishing to travel to verify the conditions and procedures of their destination countries to avoid violating regulations.

He also pointed out that the UAE and all national sectors are keen to protect the health and safety of the entire community and limit the spread of the pandemic. The country is witnessing a steady decline in infections, which underscores the directives of the UAE’s leadership to harness all national capacities and capabilities to prioritise human health, he noted.

The UAE has proven its success in managing the crisis through proactive steps and plans aimed at containing the pandemic and reducing its repercussions, he added, highlighting the success of the joint efforts between all national sectors nationwide.

This harmony is due to the country's strategy to maintain a balance between various sectors to achieve sustainable recovery, Al Ameri said, stressing that relevant national authorities concerned with managing the pandemic are constantly upgrading their information and studying ways of reducing and preventing risks.

"The response to the crisis is still ongoing, and we are relying on the community's awareness and adherence to the precautionary measures," he stated. The country’s ongoing success in responding to the pandemic is based on the community's awareness and adherence to relevant precautionary measures and their compliance with the instructions of official authorities, he added.

He then expressed his pride for the Emirati community, which helped achieve recovery and return to normalcy.
