"Dubai Health Authority has established several intensive care units in various hospitals, provided with trained and qualified medical cadres and with the latest medical devices and equipment, which contributed to the reduction of mortality rate in these units from 60% to 35%, while the universally accepted percentage ranges between 45 to 50%", he added.
