"We await the recommendations of the extraordinary meeting the World Health Organisation is to hold on Monday in order to implement them in the UAE," the head of the committee, Hussein Rand, was quoted as saying by the newspaper.
According to Rand, no case of Zika has been reported in the United Arab Emirates as yet, but the country’s authorities are working to make sure that the country remains free of the virus.
The Zika outbreak started in Brazil in spring 2015. It has since spread across Latin America, causing several deaths, as well as brain damage in newborns, known as microcephaly.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that the "explosive" spread of the infection globally is a cause for concern. The first case of the Zika virus in Europe was confirmed in Denmark in January, followed by Sweden and Germany.
