The last time this happened was on October 19.

The UAE’s daily Covid-19 cases have dipped below the 1,000 mark for the first time in over two months. The country recorded 944 cases on Sunday, December 27.

The last time the country recorded less than 1,000 new coronavirus cases was on October 19, when 915 infections were registered.

Since then, daily cases have hovered between 1,000 and 1,400.

The country’s Covid-19 infection rate is below 1 per cent. Of the 20.33 million Covid tests conducted, 201,836 were positive cases – an infection rate of 0.9 per cent.

In contrast, the infection rate in Europe stands at 11.9 per cent (as on December 8).

The reassuring dip comes as the country continues its free vaccination campaigns across the country.

Dubai rolled out its free Covid-19 vaccine campaign last week, with residents being given the Pfizer-BioNTech jab.

The Chinese Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine is being offered to masses across many hospitals and medical centres in the country.
