ABU DHABI, Feb 14 (MENA) - The UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention announced Friday that two new Coronavirus patients admitted into one of the country’s hospitals had recovered, bringing the number of recovered cases to three out of a total of eight recorded cases, WAM reported.

The two new patients who had recovered were Chinese citizens, a 41-year old man, and his son, who was eight years of age, the ministry said.

Head of International Health Regulations at the UAE Health Ministry Fatima Al Attar indicated that the treatment of the Coronavirus depends on enhancing the immunity level of patients, treating the symptoms and easing complications, as there is no vaccine for the virus to date.

She pointed out that the father and son had received medical treatment in one of the country's best hospitals.

Attar noted that the studies currently available have proven that the recovery rate from this virus may reach 98 per cent.

Individuals diagnosed are receiving proper healthcare in accordance with leading World Health Organisation standards, with each case being individually monitored until full recovery is achieved, she emphasized.

It is reported that the other five cases are still being continuously monitored and one of them is under intensive care.
