The UAE's robust response to the pandemic was recognised in a new global ranking of 50 cities.

On Monday, health officials in Abu Dhabi said only 0.2 per cent of people tested for coronavirus in the emirate were found to be positive.

Abu Dhabi's Emergency, Crisis and Disasters Committee said the low rate was achieved thanks to the emirate's intensive testing regime.
