The Ministry of Public Health today announced the registration of 560 confirmed new cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) and the recovery of 49 cases of the disease, bringing the total recovery cases in the State of Qatar to 464 cases.

​Most of the new cases of COVID-19 are due to people being in contact with existing cases among citizens and residents and a number of the new cases are among migrant workers. Some cases of the virus were discovered among citizens and residents who contacted health authorities after experiencing symptoms of inflammation in the respiratory system. The newly infected cases have been placed under complete isolation and they are receiving necessary medical care.

The Ministry of Public Health stated that the noticeable increase in the number of confirmed new cases of infection is due to several reasons, including the fact that the spread of the virus has started to enter into the peak stage, which is the highest wave that affects the country, which may continue to increase for a period before it starts to decline. It is also due to the steady increase in efforts of the Ministry of Public Health and its medical teams to track the transmission chains of the Coronavirus and conduct intensive and proactive investigations of groups of contacts with people who were diagnosed with the disease previously.

This has contributed to the early detection of many cases of infection and reducing the spread of the virus. The Ministry of Public Health also requests all members of society to stay at home and cooperate fully with all health guidelines and preventive measures to reduce the risk of infection, including sticking to social and physical distancing guidelines. The Ministry also recommends that you regularly visit the MOPH website for the most up-to-date guidance on how to stay safe.​
