In further tweets, Sheikh Mohamed reassured residents, commended healthcare workers and said the UAE was faring well in tackling the virus.
“I’d like to reassure every citizen and resident of the UAE that our Country is infinitely able to supply everyone with all the food and medicine they could ever need. We are well prepared to face any challenge that arises,” Sheikh Mohamed tweeted.
“I send my sincerest appreciation and gratitude to all the health workers of the UAE. They stand in the front line of our defences, we owe them a great debt, and we will never forget their service.
“The protection of our land, people and all those that make the UAE their home is our responsibility. The UAE has taken advanced measures early to limit this virus, and our precautions continue to increase. We are learning from countries around the world that share our experience.
“These tough times that we are facing with the rest of the world shall pass. However, we must all have patience. The UAE is faring well, all thanks to the early efforts and measures in place to face this virus.”
