The United Arab Emirates reported on Thursday 94 cases of new COVID-19 infections – only the second time in 2021 cases have fallen below the 100 mark.

The country’s National Emergency Crisis and Disasters Management Authority (NCEMA) also reported 140 recoveries and two virus-related deaths in the last 24 hours.

The UAE’s COVID-19 death toll now sits at 2,126.

Total diagnosed cases since the pandemic’s onset increased to 739, 018 and total recoveries to 732,873.

Thursday’s figures also marked a record low of new infections this year. The previous lowest was reported on Sunday when the UAE reported just 99 daily new cases.

NCEMA have also announced that 96.58 percent of the population have also received one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while almost 86.58 percent have been fully inoculated.

The UAE has been leading the way in vaccinating its population against the virus, with over 20.8 million doses already administered.
