Abu Dhabi Updates Protocol for Covid-19 Patients, Close Contact

Abu Dhabi has updated the protocol for those who test positive for Covid-19 or who are closely related.

The Abu Dhabi Ministry of Health, which has the Abu Dhabi Emergency, Crisis and Disaster Committee, has updated the Protocol.

High-risk categories that test positive for the virus should access one of the designated Covid-19 Prime Assessment Centers for evaluation and quarantine measures. To terminate quarantine, patients test negative twice at 24-hour intervals or perform PCR tests on days 8 and 10 and are asymptomatic during the last 3 days of quarantine after medical evaluation. You need to complete the quarantine for 10 days.

The high-risk category includes people over the age of 50 who have symptoms, have chronic illness, and pregnant women.

People with mild to moderate symptoms, no chronic illness, and a positive Covid-19 test should be retested at an Abu Dhabi medical facility and continue to be quarantined. Experts will contact them for quarantine procedures to retest positives, Abu Dhabi Government Media Office I am reporting.

Those who test negative on the retest should continue their precautions while undergoing another PCR test to resume activity.

Close contacts receive SMS, perform PCR tests, and self-register for home quarantine. Those who test positive should follow the same protocol as above. Close associates with negative test results should perform additional PCR tests at emirate medical facilities on day 6 if vaccinated and on day 9 if not vaccinated. I have.

Those who have retested the negatives can resume their activities and continue their precautionary measures.
