The Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a pulmonary disease produced by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) and has become a global pandemic March 2019. The aim of this research is to study a modelling approach on the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic utilizing analysis that is based on the well-known susceptible-infectious-removed (SIR) model. Since the declaration of the epidemic in Wuhan-city in China and other places around the world, several studies have addressed the development and evolution of the disease in different countries and have shown good stability of the use of such model. The United Arab Emirates is among the countries affected by the spread of the virus. Using collected data from 1 March 2020 to 31 August 2020 collected by John Hopkins University and the Federal Competitiveness and Statistics Authority (FCSA) in the UAE, we apply the SIR model to simulate the evolution of the virus in the United Arab Emirates. Our model predicts a peak in the daily infected cases on 19 May 2020, and the cumulative number of infected individuals to reach 100,000 cases by the end of October 2020. © 2021 The Author(s).
