One hundred percent of the United Arab Emirates' population has received at least one dose of a vaccine against Covid-19, the health ministry has said.

According to the UAE health ministry, "a total of 21,802,032 doses" of Covid vaccine have been administered in the country.

"One hundred percent (of the population) have received one dose" while "90.18 percent are fully vaccinated.”

The UAE is home to around 10 million people.

In October, the UAE declared it had overcome the coronavirus crisis after recording its lowest number of infections that month.

The UAE has so far recorded more than 741,000 cases of Covid-19, including 2,145 deaths.
