Two government officials have visited Covid-19 screening, assessment and treatment centres on Eid Al Adha.

Sheikh Abdulla bin Mohamed Al Hamed, chairman of the Abu Dhabi Department of Health, was accompanied by Dr Jamal Al Kaabi, undersecretary of the Abu Dhabi Department of Health.

"The visits are in line with the directives and commitment of the UAE’s wise leadership to monitor Abu Dhabi’s preventive measures as part of efforts to combat the Covid-19 pandemic," the government said in a tweet.

Frontline staff were met by the officials, who congratulated them all on behalf of Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, and wished them good health on the occasion of Eid Al Adha.

Across the UAE, Eid prayers are being held in mosques for the second time since the pandemic began.
