The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced today's latest update on COVID-19 cases in Qatar.
New cases and recoveries
894 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were announced today
2,632 people have recovered from the virus during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases recovered in Qatar to 86,597
In addition, the Ministry announces three new deaths, for people aged 57, 58, and 67 - all were receiving the necessary medical care
All new cases have been introduced to isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare according to their health status
Current COVID-19 status
Measures to tackle COVID-19 have succeeded in flattening the curve and limiting the spread of the virus. The number of new daily cases and hospital admissions has gradually declined over the past few weeks
We are seeing a rise in the number of deaths in recent weeks and this is due to the people who were infected at the height of the virus several weeks ago
There has been an increase in cases among families
This is of great concern as this population group includes the highest percentage of the elderly and people with chronic conditions
Now more than ever, we must be careful and protect the most vulnerable.
What you can do
While the restrictions of "Covid-19" in Qatar are gradually being lifted, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following preventive measures: adherence to physical distancing, wearing a face mask and washing hands regularly.
Most importantly, we continue to protect the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions.
Anyone who suffers from symptoms of "Covid-19" must either call the 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centers to undergo the necessary checks: Muaither, Rawdat Al Khail, Umm Slal, or Al Gharafa health center. This is important because the sooner the disease is discovered, the easier it will be to get the correct treatment and recover from it.
