UAE: COVID 19 AND PRESENT, WITH A SECOND OPINION
Winter hit the world hard in 2020, which marked it as the most unpopular year in this demi-decade. The pandemic has altered people’s lives in both astonishing and minute ways.
COVID-19 has shaken the world both directly and indirectly. There are people who suffer from the effects of the disease itself, and there are people who suffer from the very presence of it. From unemployment to even a large body count, COVID-19 has brought devastation throughout the world.
In the month of January 2020, COVID-19 had already entered UAE, all the way from China. Authorities decided to launch a 11-day sterilisation campaign as a means to contain COVID-19.
Many precautions were immediately taken into action, so as to deal with this pandemic as soon as possible, with minimal casualty. By June 2020, the number of cases had spiked greatly. UAE has benefited largely from its humongous tourism sector. Hopefully, 2021 marks itself as a year of hope and positive progress for UAE as it aims to inoculate 70% of its population with Sinopharm & Pfizer vaccine by the end of the year.

Need and concerns of Vaccination
Vaccination is the only glimpse of hope during this Pandemic. But many hesitate to vaccinate themselves. The major reason behind this is basically “the lack of information received.” People are hesitant because they don’t know the importance of vaccinating and how it will in turn affect the people and even society.
Healthcare workers continue to be on the frontline of the nation’s fight against this potent virus. Protecting our doctors, nurses, etc. should be our number one priority. The second priority goes to our at-risk elderly. The vaccine will help us tackle two obstacles— one, it will further bring down mortality, and secondly, it will bring down the average number of cases.
Is the vaccine really safe?
The data indicate that vaccination is indeed safe and highly recommended. There may be local side-effects like swelling, pain, and fever. But that is completely normal, as it is merely an indication of an immune response of our body to the vaccine. This data is based on the cumulative response from around 90,000 vaccine candidates. So you can rest assured of its efficiency and safety.
OUR MESSAGE TO PEOPLE WHO ARE UNSURE EVEN NOW!
Be assured, the vaccines that our regulators have given are safe and effective. If we want to get over this pandemic, socially and economically, vaccines are the key. Every aspect of life- the safety, and education of your children, jobs, health services, businesses- has been hit by the pandemic. A vaccine is vital to get things back to normal.
DOES VACCINATION MEAN END OF PROTOCOLS?
Not at all! Vaccination is just to keep you safe. You still need to ensure other people’s safety till 100% inoculation happens. So, continue wearing the masks at least for the next one year. If you look at it from a different perspective, masks give you protection from several other diseases such as tuberculosis, other respiratory diseases, and even air pollution. So getting used to it is no big disadvantage.
