According to Darwish, “there is great confidence among tourists from different segments to spend vacations in the Emirates due to the health system and the procedures it follows, along with a strong infrastructure to deal with the developments of the pandemic,” noting that “the UAE has achieved the highest global rates in relation to the special vaccination campaign” (Covid-19).
