Department of Health – Abu Dhabi temporarily suspends physician’s license
15 Nov, 2020: The Department of Health - Abu Dhabi has temporarily suspended the license of a physician working in Abu Dhabi’s healthcare sector after he spoke in a video clip about details of participating in clinical trials for the COVID-19 vaccine, and his subsequent immunity results. Revealing such information violates UAE legislation, and breaches protocol around the clinical trials and confidentially agreements.
Clinical trials are conducted according to strict healthcare procedures and international protocols. As is the case with any scientific research, all clinical trial participants are subject to confidentiality agreements. These require that they do not disclose any details, unless a relevant entity chooses to do so.
