The United Arab Emirates (UAE) has granted emergency approval to use a coronavirus vaccine, six weeks after human trials in the Gulf state started.

The third phase of the trial of a COVID-19 inactivated vaccine developed by Chinese state-owned pharmaceutical company Sinopham began in the UAE in July and is yet to be completed.

The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, in a tweet on Monday, said the vaccine would be available for the first line of defense between heroes who are at the highest risk of contracting the virus.

The announcement came amid a surge in new COVID-19 cases in the UAE, which reported 1,007 cases on Saturday, its highest since the start of the pandemic.
