COVID-19: MoPH announces 1523 new cases, 3147 new recoveries, and two deaths

By QLNews

In today’s coronavirus (COVID-19) statistics, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that Qatar recorded 1523 new cases, 3147 new recoveries, and two deaths.

The reason for the large increase in the number of recoveries is due to the application of the latest international recommendations regarding criteria for recovering from COVID-19 infection, which was approved by the Ministry of Public Health. According to the new protocol, most patients with COVID-19 in Qatar will be discharged from healthcare facilities fourteen days after their first positive swab.

Over the last 24 hours, the Ministry also recorded 22 new patients being admitted to intensive care due to the virus, bringing the total number of cases currently in intensive care to 240.

The Ministry states that the new cases are due to expatriate workers who were infected with the virus as a result of contact with individuals who were previously infected, in addition to recording new cases of infection among groups of workers in different regions. The new cases have been identified after conducting investigations by the research and investigation teams of the Ministry of Public Health that contributed to the early detection of cases.

Cases of infection have also increased among citizens and residents because of contact with infected family members who had been infected in the workplace or through visits and family gatherings.

The new confirmed cases of infection have been introduced to complete isolation in the various medical facilities in the country, where they receive the necessary healthcare according to the health status of each case.

The Ministry of Health revealed that infections increased due to family gatherings and visits between friends and extended families, and people ignoring the preventive measures recommended by the concerned authorities; the most important of which is staying at home and maintaining social distance.

The Ministry stated that the two new deaths recorded belong to people aged 50 and 58, who had received the necessary medical care in intensive care. The Ministry of Public Health offers sincere condolences and great sympathy to the families of the deceased.

Anyone who has symptoms of COVID-19 should either quickly contact the 16000 helplines or go directly to one of the designated health centers for testing. 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 four main testing centres are:

- Muaither Health Centre

- Rawdat Al Khalil Health Centre

- Um Slal Health Centre

- Al Gharafa Health Centre
