Fifteen medical centres across the country have been allocated to pregnant women, reducing their risk of getting exposed to the Covid-19 virus as they go for their health checks, the Ministry of Health and Prevention has announced.
Each emirate will have specific centres where stringent safety measures will be implemented, the ministry added.
Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah will each have four centres for pregnant women, while Ajman will have two. A hospital in Umm Al Quwain will also be identified, reports said. Those in Dubai may visit the family medical centre to be allocated in Sharjah.
The ministry advised expectant mothers to continue their check-ups to stay healthy amid the pandemic situation. In case of emergencies, they must seek medical care immediately, it added.
If someone in their house presents symptoms of Covid-19, they must follow all precautionary measures and notify health centres right away, the ministry said.
