Her Excellency (H.E.) Minister of Public Health Dr. Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, visited today the Communicable Disease Centre and Qatar Rehabilitation Centre of Hamad Medical Corporation, where she met with senior officials responsible for providing services related to fighting Coronavirus (COVID -19).
H.E. the Minister of Public Health, in her visit to the Communicable Disease Centre (CDC), was accompanied by Medical Director at CDC Dr. Mona Al Muslimani and was briefed on the treatment services provided by the Centre for COVID-19 patients.
Her Excellency met with the infection control teams to discuss patient care protocols that were specially developed to treat cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection and the symptoms associated with it. During the visit, Her Excellency visited a new clinic created by the CDC to obtain blood plasma from people recovering from the coronavirus (COVID-19).
This advanced service enables collection of blood plasma from people who have recovered from infection with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and transporting it to people with the disease who are currently receiving treatment, as the antibodies present in the blood plasma taken from the recovered people can help patients undergoing treatment to enhance their resistance to the virus
During the visit to the new clinic, H.E. the Minister of Public Health met a person recovering from the virus who is also plasma donor, and discussed with him his experience regarding infection and his recovery from this disease.
During her visit to the Qatar Rehabilitation Centre, Her Excellency reviewed two of the main services provided at the center under the supervision of the Medical Director of Rumailah Hospital and Qatar Rehabilitation Centre Dr. Hanadi Al Hamad, and visited a gymnasium at the center, and examined part of a training session for a small number of the elderly patients. These classes are taken regularly to ensure that patients continue to be physically active and maintain their health during this difficult period.
In addition, H.E. Dr. Al Kuwari and Dr. Hanadi Al Hamad participated in one of the "remote" medical counselling sessions provided by the Geriatric Clinic, where this service was launched with the aim of enabling elderly patients to obtain medical consultations from their homes and spare them the need to visit the hospital.
On the other hand, H.E. the Minister of Public Health discussed during the daily meeting of the Health System Committee for Accident Control to confront Covid-19, which is held under the chairmanship of Dr. Saad Al Kaabi, the latest developments related to Coronavirus and the plans for the ongoing health system efforts to combat this epidemic.
