COVID Cooperation Among UAE and Israeli Health Ministries
Health Minister Yuli Edelstein and UAE Health Minister Abdul Rahman Ben Muhammad al-Avis agreed on Monday on the first act of health cooperation between the countries.
Each ministry will appoint a coordinator responsible for communicating with the other country, with an emphasis on the common struggle against the coronavirus. This is the beginning of the collaboration Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said would follow when he signed a peace deal with the UAE earlier this month.
According to Worldometers, the UAE has 67,282 cases of the virus and 362 deaths. It has a population of 9.6 million.
The health ministers said the cooperation was “excellent news for our countries.”
In addition, the two are already setting up delegations of businesspeople from both countries to start a joint business. Once the coronavirus crisis ends, the countries will also work toward creating student exchanges. (JPost / VFI News)
