The UAE is planning to issue a mandatory national emergency blueprint for H1N1 virus, a senior health official disclosed yesterday.

"The action plan will be binding to all stakeholders meant to combat the disease...... the document is part of development process of the national comprehensive strategy in line with Gulf and Arab plans, Dr. Ali Ahmed bin Shuker, head of the Technical Health Committee on Combating the disease said after presiding over the committee's meeting today.

He added that a task force, mainly set up for that purpose, would convene next Sunday to explore the best mechanisms for chalking the plan and its implementation. The move, he said, aimed at upgrading the national anti-H1N1 plan in coping with the latest world developments.

A programme for delivery of vaccines was also discussed at the meeting with emphasis on meeting requirements of the start of the new academic year.

Provision of more beds at hospitals and arrangements for admitting infected patients in case of an outbreak figured high at the meeting. The Committee decided to hold a meeting with the General Authority for Islamic Affairs and Endowment to work out an awareness plan for Umrah and Haj performers.

Meanwhile, the Ministry of Health (MoH) has announced that 79 cases of H1N1 virus have been cured and discharged from the hospital after full recovery. The MoH added in a weekly statement that 31 cases were still receiving treatment at hospitals, adding that their conditions were stable. - Emirates News Agency, WAM
