The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) announced 392 new confirmed cases of coronavirus, and 9 new recovery cases of the virus, bringing the total number of recovered people from coronavirus in Qatar to 415.
According to the MOPH website, some of the new cases of coronavirus are due to people being in contact with existing cases among citizens and residents and a number of the new cases are among migrant workers.
Some cases of the virus were discovered among citizens and residents who contacted health authorities after experiencing symptoms of inflammation in the respiratory system. The newly infected cases have been placed under complete isolation and they are receiving necessary medical care.
MOPH stated that the increase in the number of confirmed new cases of coronavirus is due to the Ministry’s success in tracking the transitional chains of the virus and expanding the surveillance process. This is in addition to conducting extensive investigations of groups of contacts who were suspected of contracting the disease. These steps have contributed to the early detection of many cases and helped to reduce disease outbreaks.
MOPH requests all members of society to cooperate fully and adhere to all health guidelines and preventive measures to reduce the risk of infection, including sticking to social and physical distancing guidelines.
