Health Minister Dr. Hanif Hassan presided yesterday over the meeting of the Higher Supervisory Committee on Combating H1N1 virus. The meeting took stock of preventive and educational measures taken by the health authorities in the country.

The meeting reviewed a health awareness plan for the upcoming Haj and Umrah to be launched in coordination with the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowment and other similar campaigns targeting schools, universities and colleges.

Health officials told the committee that the new 20 H1N1 patients had already left the hospital after they had completely recovered. The officials affirmed that all the 47 reported cases in the UAE had been fully treated and were discharged from hospitals. The committee instructed the health ministry to publish an update on the virus every Monday and go ahead with awareness plans.



Meanwhile, the minister toured an exhibition organised at the Marina Mall Abu Dhabi by the ministry in association with the health authorities in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The event aims to raise public awareness about preventive and curative methods of the virus. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
