RAK Hospital’s free-of-cost programme offers physical, cognitive, dietary and psychological support to patients.
According to World Health Organisation studies, in severe cases, the virus could leave sufferers weak and dependent on walking aids and the assistance of others to complete basic tasks such as washing, dressing and walking.
These patients, many of whom have spent weeks in an ICU, might need intensive rehabilitation to return to a normal life.
“We decided to launch the Covid-19 rehabilitation programme entirely free-of-cost for those UAE residents who have recovered from the infection, to enable them to return to enjoying normal life with their families,” said Dr Raza Siddiqui, executive director of RAK Hospital.
