86,000 cases of recovery from nearly 100,000 infections is an exceptional achievement

Recording 86,000 cases of recovery from nearly 100,000 infections is an exceptional achievement in addition to maintaining one of the lowest death rates in the world with a total of 118 deaths so far.

For last few weeks, we have been seeing a decrease in the number of cases that are reported daily and  number of patients admitted to the hospital is also going down. We started to lift the restrictions gradually and with great caution in order to control the spread of the virus

Lifting restrictions is based on a set of indicators. And the next stages will be based on their outcome. If one of the indicators is found to be affected, some restrictions can be re-imposed or the start of the following stages could be delayed.

The most important guidelines on preventive measures. Persons aged above 60 and pregnant women are advised to stay home. And all should abstain from touching, hugging and kissing. Also, everyone is advised to wear masks and glouses and avoid touching eyes and nose.

MoPH urges to reduce social visits, including family visits as much as possible.

The second phase is the actual first phase after people come into contact in the complexes and markets, and we recommend the need to maintain social distancing so that the coronavirus does not spread between customers.

We are able to maintain one of the lowest coronavirus death rates in the world and we advise against travelling outside the country at this time.

 

We are counting on the commitment of everyone- Qataris and residents - to control the pandemic and return to normal life.

MoPH urges to reduce social visits, including family visits as much as possible.

The Ministry of Public Health, in cooperation with other ministries and government agencies, published a set of guidelines on preventive measures and best practices to ensure a safe gradual lifting of restrictions and the implementation of effective measures to protect society.

Lifting restrictions in Qatar is based on a set of key indicators … In the event that one of the indicators is affected, some restrictions can be re-imposed or delay the start of following stages.

We extend a special thanks to all workers on the front lines in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic and appreciate them. We also praise the directives of His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, the Amir of the country, to fight the pandemic.

All ministries, health and academic institutions in the country participated in the collective efforts to fight the pandemic.

Our success in the second stage of the gradual opening is the guarantor of safe passage to the third and fourth phases.
