The phase four of gradually lifting restrictions to continue in Qatar

By QLNews

Qatar has been gone above and beyond in its fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

For the past few months, the country has dedicated efforts to ensure the highest standards of monitoring, detection, and management of the infection, keeping the health and wellbeing of the population as a top priority.

Because of Qatar’s robust health system, preventive and precautionary measures that have been taken, and with cooperation from citizens and residents, the country was able to move past the peak of the COVID-19 and flatten the curve, while maintaining one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world.

After getting past the virus’s peak, it became necessary to reach the required balance between preserving public health and returning to normal life. This process has been successful through implementing the four-phase plan of gradually lifting COOVID-19 restrictions.

As Qatar continues to combat the spread of the virus, the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management announced the continuation of Phase Four, including the capacities that were recently announced, with relevant state authorities reviewing the indicators periodically.

As the public health indicators show that the spread of the virus has been contained in Qatar, however, this does not mean the pandemic has been reversed or that it has disappeared.

Therefore, the Supreme Committee for Crisis Management has approved a three-phase plan to re-impose certain restrictions if the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) recommends so, based on its continuous monitoring of health indicators.

The main contributing factor for limiting the spread of the virus is people’s awareness and their commitment to following precautionary measures, especially relating to gatherings and social events, as it has recently become evident that socializing without proper caution is the main source of spreading COVID-19 in the country.

Several countries around the world have already entered the second wave of the COVID-19, and this could occur here as well if people do not take precautionary measures seriously.

Additionally, and as the spread rate of the pandemic around the world is on the rise, it is necessary to apply mandatory quarantine to all travelers returning to Qatar until further notice, with the MoPH continuing to update the list of low-risk countries.

The Supreme Committee for Crisis Management calls on all citizens and residents to commit to following the precautionary measures, including wearing masks, maintaining a safe distance, and washing hands.
