Scientific research on prevention and treatment of COVID-19

The UAE accomplished the first full genome sequencing of the COVID-19 virus from a patient in Dubai. The genome of the virus causing COVID-19 consists of 30,000 genetic letters. Understanding the strain of the virus that the patients have, can help scientists understand how it spreads. In addition, the UAE successfully applied a treatment via stem cells to mitigate COVID-19 infections. The treatment involves extracting stem cells from the patient’s blood and reintroducing them after activating them.
