According to the MoPH,

"If numbers of positive cases and hospital admissions continue to increase over the coming week or two, additional restrictions may need to be implemented across the country and we will return to some of the early restriction phases.​​"

Since the coronavirus (COVID-19) peaked last year in July, Qatar has succeeded in preventing the spread of the virus as a result of the precautionary and preventive measures the government put into place. The number of cases had gradually decreased to just over 200 a day for the last few months, but have started to increase again over the past month and we see a gradual and consistent increase in the number of new daily coronavirus (COVID-19) infections.

In addition, there has been a recent increase in the number of people admitted to the hospital with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and the number of people admitted to ICU.

The data over the next few days and week will tell us more, but these increases appear to be the early signs of a potential second wave in Qatar.

For this reason, it is more important than ever that people adhere to preventive measures to cut off the second wave before it gains momentum.

Since the cases began to increase last month, Qatar has already reimposed a number of restrictions to try to curb the spread of the virus again and to avoid a second wave, in the interest of the health and safety of all members of society,
