DHA establishes medical isolation facility

Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has established a 1,500m2 COVID-19 medical isolation facility, as part of its ongoing efforts to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus in the emirate. 

The facility is a separate building, located in an area near Rashid Hospital and contains 25 well-equipped rooms which include ICU rooms, medical isolation rooms, treatment rooms, as well as clinics and examination rooms, state run news agency Dubai Media Office reported.

The isolation ward has been established as a "proactive measure to strengthen the authority's efforts in fighting COVID-19 and contributing to the early detection and treatment of patients who have the virus, speeding their recovery," Director-General of DHA, HE Humaid Al Qutami, said.

In a similar response to the ongoing pandemic, DHA's engineering team - in April - constructed a building for isolation and intensive care near the Rashid Hospital to contain the spread of the coronavirus outbreak, Construction Week previously reported.
