The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) on Monday reported 138 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 among community and 20 among travelers. The MoPH also recorded 139 recoveries from the virus during the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases recovered in Qatar to 240,666.
National vaccination Program Data:
- 4,971,477 Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered since the start of the program.
- 9,565 Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered in the past 24 hours.
-99,790 Covid-19 booster vaccine doses have been administered to date.
- 85.3 percent of the total population are now fully vaccinated with two doses.
The MoPH said In recent weeks the combined impact of Covid-19 restrictions and increasing vaccination rates, and the overwhelming support of the community, has resulted in a consistent reduction in the number of new daily infections in the country. However, it is still important to be cautious as the second wave is not yet over and there are still two highly contagious and highly virulent strains of the virus that are actively circulating in the community.
The fourth phase of the gradual lifting of precautionary restrictions began on Sunday, Oct. 3, and is part of a four-stage plan to gradually lift the precautionary restrictions imposed in Qatar due to the Covid-19 pandemic. It is important during the current period that all members of society, including those who have received the vaccination, continue to wear masks as recommended and continue to adhere to social distancing.
The Ministry cautioned that, with Covid-19 still a threat to our health here in Qatar, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures:
- Adherence to physical distancing.
- Avoiding close contact with others, crowded places and confined closed spaces where other people congregate.
- Wearing a face mask.
- Washing hands regularly.
People should also take the Covid-19 vaccine at the earliest opportunity when their turn comes.
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.
