The Ministry confirms that efforts to tackle the COVID-19 virus in Qatar have succeeded in flattening the curve and reducing the impact of the virus by a large percentage thanks to the decisions of the ban, the preventive measures taken, and the awareness and cooperation of all members of society, and that there are relatively low average numbers in relation to the recorded cases of new hospital admissions.

The Ministry of Public Health points to the decrease in the number of daily cases that require intensive care, as the number of daily cases that require hospitalization is decreasing, but warns that infections may rise again if the community's commitment to precautions and preventive measures decreases. The Ministry explains that the new cases were diagnosed through the emergency departments or different health centers. The infection transmitted to them from people who had been previously infected, as the Ministry of Public Health continues to conduct investigative and proactive investigations, which contributes to early detection of cases. The new confirmed cases have completely isolated in the various medical facilities in the country, where they are receiving the necessary health care according to the health status of each case.

The Ministry of Public Health states that the coronavirus epidemic is gradually declining in the State of Qatar due to the precautions and preventive measures implemented by the state and the commitment to them it by members of the community with a recent decrease in the number of infections. This is considered a reassuring indicator, but it does not mean the end of the epidemic as the virus is still present in the community.

The Ministry indicates that the number of daily infections among citizens and residents (other than expatriate workers) has increased compared to what it was in May, despite the overall decrease in the total daily infections in Qatar. The Ministry cautions that most of the infections in these two categories belong to members of the same family, and that the source of the infections is often due to social mixing with friends or other relatives. Care must be taken not to transmit the virus, especially to the elderly and those with chronic diseases.

The Ministry reminds people to use a face mask as recommended and avoid social visits to reduce their risk of contracting the virus. The Ministry also stresses the importance for the elderly or those suffering from chronic diseases and their family members to follow strict measures to reduce the chances of infection, including refraining from social visits.

The Ministry also recommends that you regularly visit the MoPH website to view the latest information and instructions related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) and for the most up-to-date guidance on how to stay safe.
