DUBAI, June 29 (Xinhua) -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday announced 449 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total confirmed cases in the country to 48,246.

UAE's Ministry of Health and Prevention said 665 more patients have made full recovery from the virus, taking the tally of the UAE's recoveries to 37,076.

The ministry also confirmed one more death, pushing the country's death toll to 314.

The UAE was the first among the Gulf countries to report COVID-19 cases.

The UAE has been showing solidarity with China in its fight against the novel coronavirus. On Feb. 2 and March 12, the iconic landmarks in the UAE, including Burj Khalifa in Dubai, were lit up twice in the colors of China's national flag to show its solidarity with China.

In late April, the Chinese consulate general in Dubai organized an online conference for Chinese doctors and medical experts to share experiences in preventing and treating the coronavirus with UAE counterparts.
