There are two new COVID19 facilities in Dubai as another has reverted back to being a “non-COVID19 hospital” after having been certified “clean” by pertinent health authorities.
Recently certified clean by the Dubai Healthcare City Authority (DHCA) is the Mediclinic City Hospital within the Dubai Healthcare City free zone in Umm Hurair 2 and among the leading organ transplantation centers in the Middle East and North Africa.
All COVID19 patients of the hospital “(had been) transferred to other facilities,” according to the Mediclinic Middle East press statement forwarded to Gulf Today on Monday afternoon.
On the new COVID19 centers, one had been categorized as a “medical isolation facility.”
The special classification is aligned with the new “prevention strategy” of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) which manages and operates it.
DHA-Board chairman/director general Humaid Al Qutami, in a press statement said the “prevention strategy takes different scenarios into consideration to help DHA foresee and appropriate decisions accordingly, such as establishing field hospitals or medical isolation facilities, among others.”
