What You Can Do

With the recent increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in Qatar, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures:

• Adherence to physical distancing.

• Avoid close contact with others, crowded places and confined closed spaces where other people congregate.

• Wearing a face mask

• Washing hands regularly.

• Anyone suffering from COVID-19 symptoms should contact the 16000 helpline immediately. 

This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it.
