In today’s COVID-19 statistics, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that Qatar recorded 283 new cases and 33 new recoveries.

Some of the new cases of COVID-19 are due to people being in contact with existing cases among citizens and residents and a number of the new cases are among migrant workers. Some cases of the virus were discovered among citizens and residents who contacted health authorities after experiencing symptoms of inflammation in the respiratory system. The newly infected cases have been placed under complete isolation and they are receiving necessary medical care.

​33 cases of recoveries were registered, bringing the total cases of COVID-19 in the State of Qatar to 406.

The total number of tests conducted in Qatar as of today is 54,484.

As health authorities in the country continue to implement the highest level of monitoring, detection, and management procedures to deal with the virus, the public has been advised to follow certain measures to safeguard their health.

This includes washing your hands often, using hand sanitizers, and keeping a distance of at least one meter (3 feet) from people who have symptoms of illness.

MoPH calls on all members of society to stay at home and not go out except where absolutely necessary. Ministry of Public Health also requests all members of society to cooperate fully and adhere to all health guidelines and preventive measures to reduce the risk of infection, including sticking to social and physical distancing guidelines. 

For any queries, or concerns related to COVID-19 in Qatar, the public can contact a 24/7 hotline set up by the Ministry. The hotline number is 16000 and is toll-free.
