Ajman has opened a field hospital with more than 200 beds to treat patients with moderate and serious cases of Covid-19.

The 7,000-square-metre facility has 48 intensive care beds and 156 beds for severe and moderate cases.

It is staffed by 75 doctors, 231 nurses and 44 technicians and assistant healthcare workers.

Sheikh Ammar bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, Crown Prince of Ajman, toured the hospital on Sunday.

He praised the UAE's approach to tackling the pandemic and said the hospital has "advanced world-class equipment to meet the needs of patients".

Sheikh Ammar urged citizens and residents to follow precautionary measures aimed at curbing the pandemic.

The field hospital in Ajman is one of seven the UAE is opening in the coming weeks which will provide a capacity of 2,058 beds –  including 292 for critical cases.
