More than 1 million people have recovered from COVID-19
The statistics websites put total coronavirus cases at around 3.2 million worldwide, with 1,001,000 recoveries. The data is driven by information from 210 participating countries and is updated daily.
For its part, the UAE has had 11,929 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, with 2,329 recoveries. Sadly, there have been 98 deaths due to the virus.
The country has recently relaxed its strict lockdown measures, re-opening malls and other retail operations (albeit, at very reduced numbers). Residents can now travel between one emirate and another between the hours of 6 am to 10 pm, said the Abu Dhabi police. That includes the ability to go on a staycation during Ramadan and Eid holidays.
However, health authorities have said that the easing of the lockdown does not mean you should not take precautions.
"The easing of restrictions and procedures does not necessarily mean complacency," says Dr Farida Al Hosani, the spokesperson for the country's health sector.
"Prevention is mandatory for everyone to protect himself first and protect those around him, and based on awareness and responsibility in commitment; we will all succeed, God willing, in overcoming this stage."
Elsewhere around the world, both Italy and Spain are seeing some easing of their restrictive lockdown, while South Korea reported no new cases for the second day running. The United States has just surpassed more than 100,000 cases (making it the new epicentre for the pandemic).
