Abu Dhabi’s Crown Prince has declared that life is returning to normal in the United Arab Emirates, as coronavirus cases decline.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed made the remarks Wednesday as his regular Abu Dhabi “majlis,” the royal gathering space, resumed in-person.
Sheikh Mohammed said: “I bring you good news. The health situation in the United Arab Emirates is good.”
Coronavirus infections in the Emirates have plunged to under 200 a day, their lowest level since the start of August 2020. Inoculations have accelerated, with over 84% of people fully vaccinated.
“We thank God that we have emerged from this crisis, well, with goodness, honor, safety, health and experiences that we have paid for but that have brought us a lot of knowledge,” Sheikh Mohammed said.
While life in the UAE has largely returned to normal, it retains strict rules on wearing masks and social distancing.
