In an interview with Qatar Television, Dr. Abdullatif Al Khal, Chair of the National Health Strategic Group on COVID-19 and Head of Infectious Diseases Division at Hamad Medical Corporation said, "In the past weeks, the State of Qatar has witnessed a noticeable decrease in the daily numbers, as well as a decrease in cases requiring hospitalization. The National Program for Vaccination against the coronavirus has proven its success and effectiveness in limiting the spread of the virus in society."

He also mentioned that "The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) invites people aged 50 and over to take the booster dose. Based on the indicators that determine the extent of the virus’s activity and its spread in society, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) recommends moving from one stage to another and gradually easing restrictions. The most important restrictions that will be lifted are the return of students to schools and universities at 100% capacity. With regard to the return of students to schools, there will be the maintenance of a meter distance between students and mandatory wearing of masks."
