The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has just announced the registration of 833 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) bringing the total number of positive cases in Qatar to date to 9358, and has stated that 120 more people have recovered from the virus, bringing the total number of people that have recovered in Qatar to 929.

Most of the new cases registered are due to expatriate workers that work in different occupations who have been in contact with previously discovered cases, as well as recording new cases of COVID-19 among groups of workers from outside the industrial area who were identified through testing by The Ministry of Public Health. This has contributed to the early detection of new cases.

The remainder of new cases infected with the virus have come from citizens and residents who have contracted the virus from members of their families, who in turn had contracted the virus through their workplaces or other places where they had been exposed to infected people. All the new infected cases have been quarantined where they are receiving the necessary medical care.

The MoPH stated that the noticeable increase in the number of confirmed new cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) is due to several reasons, including that the spread of the virus has begun to enter the peak stage where numbers are expected to continue to increase before they begin to gradually decline.

This is, in addition, to the fact that the Ministry has doubled its efforts in tracking coronavirus (COVID-19) transmission chains and expanded the search for infected people by conducting extensive and proactive tests of groups of contacts with people who have been confirmed with the disease previously. This early detection of many cases of infection helps reduce the spread of the virus further.

The MoPH calls on all members of society to stay at home and not go out except in cases of necessity and to take care to implement preventive measures and maintain social distancing from others, including in the workplace and public places. The Ministry reminds people to use a face mask and avoid social visits to reduce their risk of contracting the virus. The Ministry also recommends that you visit the MoPH website regularly to view the latest information and instructions related to coronavirus (COVID-19).
