The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced yesterday 252 new confirmed cases of Covid-19, in the last 24 hours, of which 225 are from community cases and 27 from travellers returning from abroad.
The ministry also recorded 235 recoveries in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of recoveries to 127,328. In addition, the Ministry announces three new deaths, aged 78-73-81, who were receiving the necessary medical care.
All new cases have been introduced to isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare according to their health status.
Measures to tackle Covid-19 in Qatar have succeeded in flattening the curve and limiting the spread of the virus and the number of new daily cases and hospital admissions is continuing to decline each week.
Qatar’s proactive and extensive testing of suspected cases has enabled the authorities to identify a high number of positive cases in the community. Qatar has one of the lowest Covid-19 death rates in the world. This is a result of:
Very high quality of care provided thorough the public healthcare sector for Covid-19 patients
n Qatar’s young population
n Proactive testing to identify cases early
n Expanding hospital capacity, especially intensive care, to ensure all patients receive the medical care they need
n Protecting the elderly and those with chronic diseases. Even though restrictions are being lifted, and numbers are declining, this does not mean that the Covid-19 pandemic is finished in Qatar people continue to be admitted with moderate to severe symptoms.
Unless we follow all precautionary measures, we may experience a second wave of the virus and see numbers increasing there are already signs of this happening in other countries around the world.
Now more than ever, we must be careful and protect the most vulnerable. Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should either contact 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 Gharrafa health centers.
This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it. Visit the MoPH website for regular updates and new information.
