By QLNews

Qatar and Turkey have shared strong bilateral ties for decades. The two friendly nations continue to cement their relations through cooperation across various fields. 

The two countries have earlier come together to support each other in times of crisis.

Now, as the world faces the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, leaders of the two nations have jointly looked into ways to contain the virus and limit its spread. 

In a telephonic conversation yesterday, His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discussed efforts to fight the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), according to Qatar News Agency.

The two leaders also spoke about ways to combine efforts in beating the virus and curbing it from spreading.

Furthermore, HH the Amir and President Erdogan reviewed bilateral relations between the two nations and ways to strengthen them. 

Last year, in November, Qatar and Turkey had inked several agreements and Memorandums of Understanding, covering fields such as technology, urban planning, among others. 

Concerning COVID-19, Qatar has taken some remarkable steps to ensure the safety of its population. 

Recently, the Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, recognized Qatar's efforts in suppressing and controlling the spread of the disease in the country. 

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 also advises citizens and residents to use a sleeve to cover the nose and mouth while coughing and sneezing in public or to use tissue paper and dispose it appropriately.

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.

Here's everything you need to know about the virus, including ways to protect yourself.
