DUBAI, Dec 20 (KUNA) -- Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has reported a new case of novel coronavirus (MERS-CoV) in the UAE's emirate.
The 68-year-old patient, who suffers from diabetes and chronic kidney failure, was admitted to hospital after showing symptoms of the SARS-like virus, the Emirate News Agency (WAM) reported.
DHA affirmed that it was coordinating with the Ministry of Health and other health authorities in this regard and has taken necessary precautionary measures in line with international recommendations and standards set out by the World Health Organization (WHO) including epidemiological investigations for those in touch with the patient, the WMP said.
The Ministry of Health said the first laboratory confirmed case of MERS-CoV was announced by WHO on 20th September 2012 and up to 17th December, 2013, WHO confirmed 165 cases globally.
WHO stressed that the virus is not a concern for public health at the moment, and that the current situation does not require a travel ban to any country in the world, nor screenings at different ports, nor any restrictions on trade. (end) asa.mt KUNA 201734 Dec 13NNNN
