The United Arab Emirates reported on Wednesday 883 new cases of novel coronavirus which brings the number in the six Gulf Arab states to more than 200,000, according to a Reuters' tally.
Coronavirus infections in the energy producing region, which crossed the 100,000 mark on May 11, had initially been linked to travel but then spread among low-income migrant workers in overcrowded quarters, prompting authorities to increase testing.
