This year, Qatar marks a unique Eid, in light of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Although Eid Al-Fitr 2020 did not come with any public events and community gatherings, the country ensured the spirit of the celebration was kept alive, in different ways.
Through its initiative, 'Let's Celebrate Eid Together," Qatar's government reiterated the message of staying home during Eid for the welfare of the community at large.
