The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) reported yesterday, 204 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the last 24 hours, of which 181 are from community cases and 23 from travellers returning from abroad. It also reported the death of a 51-year-old patient, who had received the necessary medical care.
The health ministry recorded 188 recoveries in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of recoveries to 126,406.
All new cases have been kept in isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare.
Measures to tackle Covid-19 in Qatar have succeeded in flattening the curve and limiting the spread of the virus and the number of new daily cases and hospital admissions is continuing to decline each week.
Qatar’s proactive and extensive testing of suspected cases has enabled us to identify a high number of positive cases in the community.
Qatar has one of the lowest Covid-19 death rates in the world.
This is a result of:
* Very high quality of care provided through the public healthcare sector
* Qatar’s young population
* Proactive testing to identify cases early
* Expanding hospital capacity, especially intensive care, to ensure patients receive the medical care
* Protecting the elderly and those with chronic diseases
Even though restrictions are being lifted, and numbers are declining, this does not mean that the Covid-19 pandemic is over in Qatar, as people continue to be admitted with moderate to severe Covid-19 symptoms. Unless we follow all precautionary measures, we may experience a second wave of the virus and see numbers increasing, as there are already signs of this happening in other countries around the world.
Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should either contact 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centres.
