COVID-19: MoPH announces 203 new cases and 132 new recoveries

By QLNews

In today’s coronavirus (COVID-19) statistics, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that Qatar recorded 203 new cases and 132 new recoveries.

Among the new positive cases, 165 are from community cases and 38 from travelers returning from abroad.

In the last 24 hours, 1 new patient was admitted to intensive care due to COVID-19. The total number of cases in intensive care currently stands at 26.

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

Furthermore, the Ministry stated that Qatar has succeeded in flattening the curve and limiting the spread of the disease.

Qatar's proactive and extensive testing of suspected cases has enabled it to identify a high number of positive cases in the community, the Ministry stated.

The Ministry also underlined that Qatar has one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world.

This is due to a combination of factors including,

- very high quality of care provided to COVID-19 patients in Qatar through the country's public healthcare sector

- a young population

- proactive testing to identify cases early

- expanding hospital capacity, particularly intensive care

- protecting the elderly and those with chronic diseases.

The Ministry reiterated that while numbers are declining and restrictions are being eased, it does not mean the pandemic has ended in Qatar.

The Ministry cautioned that everyone must follow all precautionary measures or else Qatar may experience a second wave of the virus and see numbers increasing.

Now, more than ever, we must be careful and protect the vulnerable, the Ministry stressed.

"It is vital that we continue to protect the elderly and those with chronic conditions," the Ministry said.

Avoid close contact with others, crowded places, and confined closed spaces where other people aggregate, the Ministry said.

The Ministry also stressed everyone's role in controlling the virus by following the recommended precautionary measures. This includes wearing face masks in public, maintaining social distance, and washing hands regularly.

Further, the Ministry said individuals who display 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 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
