Qatar has once again stepped up to support another country amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the Government Communications Office (GCO), Qatar has delivered medical assistance to more than 80 countries across the world since the outbreak of COVID-19.

This came as a demonstration of Qatar's solidarity with Pakistan during the COVID-19 pandemic and an affirmation of the close friendship between the two nations.
Now, Qatar has for a second time extended a helping hand to Pakistan in this regard.
