UAE: An Indian man has been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) in the United Arab Emirates.
The new confirmed case brings the overall number of infected patients in UAE to eight since the outbreak of the virus in the city of Wuhan, China.
The Ministry of Health and Prevention said that the man had contracted the virus after interacting with a person who had recently tested positive.
The ministry announced last Sunday that a 73-year-old Chinese national had become the first patient to recover from the disease in the UAE.
"All reported cases are in stable condition, except for one case, who is being put under close observation by a team of senior consultants at the Intensive Care Unit," a statement by the Ministry said.
