The Peninsula Qatar reported: The Ministry of Interior has released a statement on the issue of including children in the count of passengers after the cabinet decision to limit the number of people inside a vehicle.

During a show on Qatar TV, Brigadier Abdullah Al Moftah, Director of the Public Relations Department at the Ministry of Interior, answered a question regarding the presence of children in the car in light of the cabinet’s decision to commit all citizens and residents not to have more than two people in the vehicle.

He stated "the children are counted among the passengers, and we are counting on the joint responsibility with the members of the community. The children are supposed to leave only for necessity, such as going to the hospital, for example, and the original principle is not to leave during the current and upcoming period.”

Violators will be apprehended under Law No. 17 of 1999 on prevention of infectious diseases.
