UAE Reported Its Biggest Single-Day COVID Infections Since the Start of the Pandemic

October 13, 2020

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The United Arab Emirates has recorded 1,315 new coronavirus cases, its biggest single-day infections since the start of the pandemic.

The numbers on Tuesday bring the total in the country to more than 108,600 cases and 448 deaths.

Recorded infections have soared again in recent weeks as authorities relaxed restrictions and schools resumed in-person instruction. Dubai, the region’s business hub, recently reopened its airport for international travelers.

Although coming amid an aggressive testing campaign, the upward trend has raised concerns there could be lockdowns in parts of the country that rely heavily on tourism.
