All new cases have been introduced to isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare.
Due to the measures put in place by the government and the support of the public in following preventive steps, Qatar has succeeded in curbing the spread of the virus since its peak in July.
However, over the past month in Qatar has seen a gradual and consistent increase in the number of new daily infections.
Additionally, and of great concern, is the recent increase in both the number of people admitted to hospital with Covid-19 and the number of people admitted to ICU.
The data over the next few days and week will reveal more, but these increases appear to be the early signs of a potential second wave in Qatar.
For this reason, it is more important than ever that people adhere to preventive measures to cut off the second wave before it gains momentum.
If the number of positive cases and hospital admissions continues to increase over the coming week or two, additional restrictions may need to be implemented and the country will return to some of the early restriction phases.
With the recent increase in the number of Covid-19 cases in Qatar, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures:
— Adherence to physical distancing.
— Avoid close contact with others, crowded places and confined closed spaces where other people congregate.
— Wearing a face mask.
— Washing hands regularly.
Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should contact 16000 helpline immediately.
This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it.
