This was announced during a virtual session on the COVID-19 pandemic, which was organised by the Ministry of Justice in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre, the Khaleej Times reported.
Dr. Al Hosani highlighted the UAE’s robust justice sector and complimented it for emerging as a leading partner that helped the country win over the COVID-19 challenge.
She also emphasized the importance of precautionary measures, despite the nation’s impressive record in rolling out a vaccination drive. She urged parents to take care of their children, especially toddlers amid the viral outbreak.
She also took this opportunity to appeal to the public to take the COVID-19 jab at the earliest, as the vaccine seeks to prevent the spread of SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19, and keep the vulnerable population, especially senior citizens and children, safe from the deadly contagion.
