The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) reported on Tuesday 600 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid-19), 1,005 cases of recovery from the virus in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of people recovered from the disease in Qatar to 94,903 cases. It also reported the death of a 61-year-old patient who was receiving the necessary medical care.
All new cases have been isolated 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. The number of new daily cases and hospital admissions has gradually declined over the past few weeks.
"We are seeing a rise in the number of deaths in recent weeks and this is due to the people who were infected at the height of the virus several weeks ago. There has been an increase in cases among families. This is of great concern as this population group includes the highest percentage of the elderly and people with chronic conditions. Now more than ever, we must be careful and protect the most vulnerable," the ministry said.
While the restrictions of Covid-19 are gradually being lifted in Qatar, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures: adherence to physical distancing, wearing a face mask and washing your hands regularly.
Most importantly, it is vital that people continue to protect the elderly and those with chronic medical conditions.
Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should either contact 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centres to undergo the necessary checks: Muaither, Rawdat Al Khail, Umm Slal, or Al Gharrafa health centres.
This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it.The health ministry urged people to visit its website for regular updates and new information.
