COVID-19-QATAR

The Ministry of Public Health today announced the registration of 677 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid-19), and the recovery of 68 cases of the disease in the last twenty-four hours, bringing the total number of recovered cases to 1134 cases.

Most of the new cases registered are due to expatriate workers working in different occupations who have been in contact with previously discovered cases, as well as recording new cases of COVID-19 among groups of workers from outside the industrial area who were identified through testing by the Ministry of Public Health. This has contributed to the early detection of new cases. The remainder of new cases infected with the virus have come from citizens and residents who have contracted the virus from members of their families, who in turn had contracted the virus through their workplaces or other places where they had been to exposed to infected people. All the new infected cases have been quarantined where they are receiving the necessary medical care.

The Ministry of Public Health stated that most infected cases being identified are in people who are showing only mild symptoms of the virus. The Ministry of Public Health stated that the noticeable increase in the number of confirmed new cases of coronavirus is due to several reasons, including that the spread of the virus has begun to enter the peak stage where numbers are expected to continue to increase before they begin to gradually decline. The reason for recent high numbers of positive cases is that the Ministry of Public Health has redoubled its efforts in tracking coronavirus transmission chains and expanded the search for infected people by conducting extensive and proactive tests of groups of contacts with people who have been confirmed with the disease previously. This early detection of many cases of infection helps reduce the spread of the virus further.

The Ministry of Public Health calls on all members of society to stay at home and not go out except in cases of necessity and to implement preventive measures and maintain physical distancing, including in the workplace and public places. The Ministry reminds people to use a face mask as recommended and avoid social visits to reduce their risk of contracting the virus. The Ministry also recommends that you visit its website regularly to view the latest information and instructions related to COVID-19.
