112 more people face action for not wearing masks in Qatar

The Ministry of Interior on Friday (November 27) said the police took action against 112 people for not wearing masks where they are mandatory, bringing the total number of people caught since a crackdown on violators of COVID-19 precautionary measures began to 1,879.

Ten individuals were reported for violating maximum number of people in a vehicle, which is specified as 4 including the driver, except for the members of the same family.

The police in Qatar have had a busy few days since they stepped up their crackdown on people ignoring the country's safeguards to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

 

Over past few days, the police referred to the Public Prosecution hundreds of people who didn't wear masks in public.

As per a Cabinet decision, drawn from the Law No. 17 of 1990 regarding infectious diseases and preventive measures, people who do not wear masks outside their homes may face penalties of up to three years in prison and/or QR200,000 fine.
