  • The State of Qatar does not use any equipment to detect cases except those that have been proven by the laboratory, scientifically and recognized effective.
  • The primary safety line is the consciences of people and their control over themselves before the supervision of the concerned authorities.
  • There is an increase in the number of casualties for Qataris coming from abroad, many of whom do not adhere to the conditions of quarantine and safe distance.
  • The Ministry of Health received more than 43,000 calls on the 16,000 hotline within 3 weeks, with a response rate of more than 92%, the average response speed is about 5 seconds, the average waiting time is about 5 seconds, and the satisfaction rate is about 90 %.
