Ministry clarifies that no cases of death due to coronavirus in UAE

Dubai: The UAE has not recorded any deaths from the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), and all cases registered in the country have been officially announced, officials of the Ministry of Health and Prevention told Gulf News on Thursday.

A senior official added all coronavirus-positive cases are in stable health condition, stressing that news reports about a female household worker who recently died in Dubai was baseless.

Media outlets in Manila quoted Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III as saying a Filipina domestic worker in Dubai died from coronavirus.

Earlier Philippine authorities said they were trying to get confirmation on the cause of death of a 58-year-old ilipina household worker who passed away in Dubai.

Speaking to Gulf News on Thursday from Manila, a staff from the Philippine Department of Labour and Employment (DOLE) confirmed that the Filipina, a single mother, passed away on February 2 with pneumonia as the underlying cause of death.

Media reports in Philippines had earlier said the woman died of coronavirus.
