The medics, paramedics and the technical personnel in the UAE are fully qualified to handle any situation of the H1N1 infection within the boarders of the country, said a senior official.

The director General of the UAE Ministry of Health (MoH) and chairman of the technical and medical committee for combating the Swine Flu Dr. Ali Ahmed Bin Shukr said that sub committees set up by the ministry are continuing to conduct training programmes aimed at equipping the medics and paramedics to handle the infected patients as per the plan laid out by the supervisory committee headed by the minister of health Dr. Hanif Hassan.

Bin Shukr made these comments while touring a number of hospitals in Sharjah, Kalba, Fujairah, Khor Fakkan, and Dibba to ensure the preparedness of these hospitals in handling any possible case of H1N1 infection.

Accompanied by other officials, Bin Shukr toured the emergency sections and laboratories in these hospitals and assured himself that the hospitals are well-equipped to handle any situation stemming from the virus infection.

There are enough isolation wards to receive any case of suspected infection as well as laboratory facilities to diagnose and determine whether any infection is caused by H1N1.

Adequate precautionary measures are also followed at all hospitals to ensure that the disease is not infected from one patient to another.

Bin Shukr visited a number of wards where the patients are receiving treatment. He also paid a visit to a patient, who had been discharged from hospital after complete recuperation. Visiting him at his home Bin Shukr said that the person is leading normal life as any member of the society without any effects of his past disease. – Emirates News Agency, WAM
