The Indian strain of Covid-19 is not recorded in Qatar so far, Dr Abdullatif al-Khal said. The Indian strain of Covid-19 is not recorded in Qatar so far, Dr al-Khal stated. "Even if it was spotted, it would be under control because of the quarantine policy," he added.
With the number of community cases declining, infections from returning travellers now make up a larger proportion of the total daily cases of Covid-19, Dr Abdullatif al-Khal said.
"Our data shows around 2 - 6% of returning travellers test positive," he told a press conference on Qatar TV yesterday.
"This rate of infection is not abnormally high and consistent with rates that we would expect to see in people returning from multiple countries.
"Our quarantine policy for anyone entering Qatar has been one of the strictest of its kind in the world and proved to be effective in detecting those infected and quickly isolating them and delaying the introduction of new variants into Qatar," he said.
