DUBAI, July 13 (Xinhua) -- The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Monday announced 344 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total confirmed cases in the country to 55,198.

UAE's Ministry of Health and Prevention said in a statement that the new cases of many nationalities are all in a stable condition and receiving medical treatment.

The ministry added that 373 more patients have recovered from the virus, taking the tally of recoveries in the UAE to 45,513.

It also confirmed one more death, pushing the country's death toll to 334.

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

It has been showing solidarity with China in 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.

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