Ministry of Public Health announces today the registration of 59 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid 19), in addition to 3 more cases of patients recovering from the virus.
Some of the new cases of infection are related to people who have recently returned to the State of Qatar from overseas, particularly from the United Kingdom, and to others who had had contact with people infected with the virus, either from family members who live in the same house or from relatives in other homes. All new cases have been put into quarantine where they are receiving the necessary medical care.
The Ministry of Public Health announces that the three new cases of recovery bring the total number of people to have now recovered from coronavirus (Covid 19) to 51 in the State of Qatar.
The Ministry of Public Health has commissioned new laboratory techniques for testing Coronavirus (Covid-19) with which it is possible to conduct a greater number of tests each day than before which has led to an increase in the number of cases that are being discovered each day – which is helping in the early detection of infected cases and thus helping to reduce the spread of the virus.
The Ministry of Public Health is continuing to undertake all necessary checks for all citizens arriving from abroad, as well as all individuals who have been in contact with the affected cases. The Ministry of Health also requests that all members of society cooperate fully and adhere to all guidelines and advice regarding limiting the spread of the virus.
