COVID-19: MoPH announces 1993 new cases, 5205 new recoveries, and 3 deaths

By QLNews

In today’s coronavirus (COVID-19) statistics, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that Qatar recorded 1993 new cases, 5205 new recoveries, and 3 deaths.

In the last 24 hours, 20 new patients were admitted to intensive care due to COVID-19. With these, the total number of cases in intensive care has reached 216.

The Ministry said the large number of recoveries has been due to the application of the latest international recommendations regarding criteria for recovering from COVID-19 infection, approved by MOPH.

According to the MOPH, 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. This is in addition to 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 that contributed to the early detection of cases.

The Ministry said that COVID-19 cases have also risen among citizens and residents due to contact with infected family members who had been infected in the workplace or through visits and family gatherings.

The Ministry affirmed that the new cases have been subjected to complete isolation in different medical facilities across the country. The infected individuals are being given the necessary healthcare, according to their health status.

The rise in the number of positive cases, recently, has been linked to family gatherings, visits, sharing meals together with relatives and extended families.

The Ministry revealed that the number of positive cases between citizens and residents witnessed a significant rise, with the number of infections relating to family gatherings, visits, and sharing meals together with relatives and extended families.

Regarding the three new deaths, MOPH said the three individuals, aged 84, 48 and 65 years old, were suffering from chronic diseases and received treatment in intensive care.

The Ministry extended its sincere condolences and great sympathy to the families of the deceased.

Furthermore, the Ministry underlined that Qatar is still in the peak phase of the virus outbreak and therefore it is most important to adhere to the preventive measures and social measures recommended.

The Ministry also stresses the importance for the elderly or those suffering from chronic diseases and their family members to follow strict measures to reduce the chances of infection, including refraining from social visits.

Individuals who display symptoms of COVID-19 should either quickly contact the 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centers for testing. This is important to ensure early detection and appropriate treatment and care.

The four main testing centers are:

- Muaither Health Centre

- Rawdat Al Khalil Health Centre

- Um Slal Health Centre

- Al Gharafa Health Centre
