COVID-19: MoPH announces 600 new cases, 1005 new recoveries and one death

By QLNews

In today’s coronavirus (COVID-19) statistics, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) announced that Qatar recorded 600 new cases, 1005 new recoveries, and one death.

In the last 24 hours, 7 new patients were admitted to intensive care due to COVID-19. With these, the total number of cases in intensive care has reached 154.

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.

Regarding the death, the Ministry mentioned that this was of an individual aged 61 who was receiving the necessary medical care.

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

The number of new daily cases and hospital admissions has gradually declined over the past few weeks.

The country has been witnessing a rise in the number of deaths in recent weeks, the Ministry added. This is due to the people that were infected at the height of the virus.

There has also been a rise in the number of cases among families. This is of great concern, the Ministry stated, as this population group includes the highest percentage of the elderly and people with chronic conditions.

As Qatar enters Phase 2 of the easing of restrictions today, the Ministry reiterated 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.

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

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
