Yesterday an Arabic newspaper published a story with a title that can be translated as "Hamad bin Ahmed: vital sectors will resume operations after 2 weeks" which led people in Qatar to believe that shops and other vital sectors that are getting affected by the lockdown due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) situation in Qatar would resume business after two weeks.
However, the content of the story indicates that His Excellency (H.E.) Sheikh Hamad bin Ahmed bin Abdullah Al Thani, a member of the Board of Directors of the Qatar Chamber, had a meeting with H.E. Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa bin Abdulaziz Al Thani, Prime Minister and Minister of Interior, and they discussed topics related to supporting the private sector and ways were found to increase participation in various fields, thereby contributing to the advancement of economic development.
During their discussion about vital sectors in Qatar, it was decided that a number of vital sectors would return to their work gradually after a proper plan was devised and assessed, and with a mechanism determined by the government. After the assessment, there would be a gradual easement into opening vital sectors, to maintain the continuity of the economic wheel and support the work of the private sector.
The article has since been edited and rewritten with the misleading title changed to "Hamad bin Ahmed: Prime Minister stressed support for the role of the private sector", and the original article has been deleted.
