The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) reported on Tuesday 463 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) during the last 24 hours, of which 421 were from community and 42 from travellers returning from abroad who are subject to quarantine.
The MoPH also recorded 359 recoveries from the virus during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases recovered in Qatar to 154,420.
All new cases have been introduced to isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare.
Due to the measures put in place by the government and the public's support in following preventive steps, Qatar has succeeded in curbing the spread of the virus since its peak in July.
However, over the past month Qatar has seen a gradual and consistent increase in the number of new daily infections. It is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures:
— Adherence to physical distancing.
— Avoid close contact with others, crowded places and confined closed spaces where other people congregate.
— Wearing a face mask.
— Washing hands regularly.
Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should contact 16000 helpline immediately.
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 MoPH urges people to visit its website for regular updates and new information.
