‘Bottled water compliant with WHO standards’
The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has clarified that bottled drinking water in the country is compliant with the approved World Health Organisation (WHO) and GCC standards.
In a notice on Twitter, the MoPH said a message circulating on social media on the “best drinking water” in Qatar contains misleading information. The ministry said sodium concentration in drinking water has no health consequences, according to the WHO. Besides, the WHO stipulates that the pH degree should be 7-8.5, which is considered safe and has no health consequences.
