Current status of the coronavirus (COVID-19)

  • Qatar’s proactive and extensive testing of suspected cases has enabled the MoPH to identify cases in the community.
  • Qatar has one of the lowest coronavirus (COVID-19) death rates in the world. This is a result of:
    1. Qatar’s young population
    2. Proactive testing to identify cases early
    3. Expanding hospital capacity, especially intensive care,  to ensure all patients receive the medical care they need
    4. Protecting the elderly and those with chronic diseases.
  • Unless we follow all precautionary measures, we will see numbers increasing.
  • Now more than ever, we must be careful and protect the most vulnerable. ​
  • Remain committed to social distancing.
  • Avoid social visits to reduce their risk of contracting the virus.
  • Wear a face mask as recommended when out of the house.
  • Wash hands with soap and water regularly; if not available use a sanitiser.
  • It is important that we continue to protect the elderly and those suffering from chronic diseases and remind their family members to follow strict measures to reduce the chances of infection, including refraining from social visits.
  • Call the toll free 24/7 coronavirus hotline at 16000 for information or if you have COVID-19-like or flu-like symptoms. This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it.​ The four main testing centres are:
    1. Muaither Health Centre
    2. Rawdat Al Khail Health Centre
    3. Um Slal Health Centre
    4. Al Gharafa Health Centre
