Over 2.7 million Covid PCR tests were performed on passengers arriving in the UAE since flights resumed, a top official has announced. The infection rate detected was 0.7 per cent. 

In the weekly Covid-19 briefing, the official said that all approved testing centres work as per the highest global standards. Severe penalties are imposed if quality is compromised, the official stressed.

The UAE has worked with global agencies to set safe travel standards. "All Covid safety measures implemented by the UAE are in line with recommendations issued by different agencies, including the World Health Organisation."
