Her Excellency Lolwah Al Khater, Official Spokesperson of the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management, addressed the citizens and residents in a video message shared by the Government Communications Office on its official Twitter page earlier this evening.

In her address, HE Al Khater reiterated Qatar's firm commitment to protecting the health and safety of the people of Qatar.

She confirmed that Qatar is working tirelessly to tackle the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), stressing that all citizens and residents must do their part for both themselves and the community.

Below is a transcription of her address:

"I want to start by saying thank you to the people of Qatar, citizens, residents and visitors, for making great sacrifices to protect themselves and their communities from the spread of the coronavirus

"Special thanks must go to our healthcare services and those working on the frontline in the fight against the virus. Your daily dedication is an inspiration to all of us

"To those afflicted with the virus, we pray for your quick and speedy recovery

"I want to pay special tribute to those in Qatar, who are under quarantine, including in the Industrial Area

"Those who have helped us build our country, as we have seen across the world, it is difficult to have life disrupted and to be apart from friends, family and community, but we must take measures to protect our collective health and welfare

"In the case of the Industrial Area, let me assure you that the government is doing everything in its power to support you, the local residents, and safeguard your health and wellbeing

"Extra medical services were mobilized to the area, and regular checkups are being taken

"and please, let us all remember that this is only a temporary period that should be over sooner or later all depending on everyone's support

"the people of Qatar have proven time and again that together they can overcome any crisis

"the blockade of Qatar was intended to tear us apart but it brought us closer together and made us stronger

"the challenge we have today is great but just as in 2017, I am confident that with solidarity, unity and resilience, we can all get through this together

"every person must do their part not only for themselves but also for the community

"Your safety is my safety. Let me assure you that the government is working around-the-clock and we will do whatever it takes to tackle this crisis and protect the people of Qatar

"May the Almighty protect all of you, protect all of us."

HE Al Khater will share the latest developments regarding Qatar's efforts to contain COVID-19 tonight.
