His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, has announced the adoption of a new system for issuing rewards to workers in the emergency sectors.

The award will be restricted to the Ministry of Health and Prevention’s medical staff, in recognition of the pivotal role they play in the fight against Sofed-19 and the working time of these staff under the emergency should exceed two months.

This was among a series of decisions announced on Sunday as the UAE Cabinet actually met.

 Sheikh Mohammed said: "Both citizens and residents supported the government and showed great social awareness in adhering to the precautionary instructions against the spread of Covid-19, and this ensures that the UAE will achieve the best recovery once the Covid-19 crisis ends."

The Vice President said that everyone in the country "without exception" today has a supporting role for national efforts in various sectors. "In the United Arab Emirates, our aspirations are high and our motivations are high. Most importantly, our government is flexible and proactive. Our team of talented professionals is responsible and dedicated to our goal."

"The UAE government team is at the forefront ... working closely to serve both Emiratis and expatriates. We are constantly working to improve services and develop innovative decisions. Our goal is to build a bright future for our younger generations."
