The management of Souq Waqif has denied the rumours circulating on social media about reopening of shops as of Tuesday, April 14.

Director of Souq Waqif Mohammed Al Salem said in a statement to Qatar News Agency (QNA) that all the circulating news on social media sites about reopening all shops in the Souq Waqif starting from Tuesday from 7 am until 1 pm are unfounded.

He pointed out that what has happened is only calling on foodstuff stores, fast food restaurants (for takeaway) and pharmacies covered by the decision of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, to adhere strictly to the precautionary measures and health safety requirements related to their employees such as sterilisation and wearing gloves and masks, adding this was in the context of preparations for the advent of the holy month of Ramadan.

He added that the management of Souq Waqif is committed to all directives issued by the competent authorities regarding precautionary measures against the coronavirus, and to support all efforts made by the State to prevent it. (QNA)
