The Ministry of Public Health has noted in a statement that bottled drinking water available in Qatar is completely safe to drink and it conforms to World Health Organization (WHO) and GCC specifications.

Countering the message doing rounds on social media, the statement cited that it was misleading and that the sodium concentration in water has no health effect according to the WHO.  

 

The bottled water in Qatar meets international standards and the authorities does not allow distribution of bottled water that doesn’t meet the specifications, it was pointed out.

As such, the MoPH urged citizens and residents to obtain health information from official sources and not go for unreliable sources.
