Things to do in Qatar from the comfort of your home
Staying home may be a bit of a challenge for some, especially for those who are fond of being out and about. However, knowing how significant your actions can be in current times, it is incredibly important to avoid going outside (unless necessary).
As you support the country's efforts in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and stay home, you can utilize your time in several other activities.
We have listed down our top five favorites to help you decide on how to get the best out of social distancing.
