He has also ordered the creation of an "emergency plan" to increase the productivity and competitiveness of the medical sector.
HH Sheikh Mohammed said: “Our national priorities need to be reviewed by the post- COVID-19 world.
"Our financial and human resources need to be redirected. Our medical, food and economic security need to be further entrenched through new programmes and projects.
