Social distancing, masks and hand sanitizer only go so far in the fight against Covid-19, not to mention a host of other chronic and lift-threatening conditions.

The recommendation came on the back of a...

Prior to the pandemic, the best place to positively impact young people outside the home was school. After all, that is where children typically spent most of their time. With the return of more face-to-face learning this fall, it is expected that many children, once again, will be spending more time with their teachers and classroom assistants than with their own parents in the comfort — and sometimes discomfort — of home. Let’s face it:...

Covid-19 vaccination is a hot topic, and while some may be apprehensive, the UAE ministry of education has made its stance very clear.

The vaccination status must be verified on the Al Hosn app. If your child turns 16 during the academic year, they are...

When Indian school teacher Faseela BV Shersha, 50, developed a terrible headache after taking the second dose of the Sinopharm vaccine against Covid-19 in February, she turned to Unani instead of allopathic medicine for relief and treatment. “Immediately after taking the vaccine, I developed a severe headache and a blood-red eye, which did not heal even though I used allopathic eye-drops for two weeks,” she adds. She then consulted a Unani medicine doctor in Dubai...
