On a speech on this occasion, the minister of health, Mr. Sidi Ould Zahaf, stressed that the health sector has initiated various measures with the aim of bringing health services closer to the citizens, particularly in such trying moments where the COVID-19 pandemic still poses great challenges to our country that need to be addressed through holistic approaches.

He added that the establishment of the Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Field Hospital, which comprises 120 beds that include 24 ICU beds fully equipped to take care of COVID-19 cases and laboratory and an X-ray device, is the fruit of distinguished bilateral cooperation between our country and the sisterly UAE that aims to boost the national health system.
