Apr 25, 2020

The Ministry of Public Health Saturday announced the registration of 833 new confirmed cases of Covid-19 and the recovery of 120 cases, bringing the total number of recovered cases to 929. The total number of cases so far reported in Qatar is 9358 and the active cases now are 8410. The death toll stands at 10.


Most of the new cases registered among expatriate workers who who have been in contact with previously discovered cases, as well as among groups of workers from outside the industrial area who were identified through testing by The Ministry of Public Health. This has contributed to the early detection of new cases. 


The remainder of new cases are among the citizens and residents who have contracted the virus from members of their families, who in turn had contracted the virus from their workplaces or other places where they had been to exposed to infected people. 


All the new infected cases have been quarantined where they are receiving the necessary medical care. 


The Ministry stated that the noticeable increase in the number of confirmed new cases of coronavirus is due to several reasons, including that the spread of the virus has begun to enter the peak stage where numbers are expected to continue to increase before they begin to gradually decline. 


This is in addition to the fact that the Ministry has doubled its efforts in tracking coronavirus transmission chains and expanded the search for infected people by conducting extensive and proactive tests among groups of people who were in contact with those who have been confirmed with the disease previously. This early detection of many cases of infection helps reduce the spread of the virus further.


The Ministry of Public Health called on all members of society to stay at home and not go out except in cases of necessity and to take care to implement preventive measures and maintain social distancing from others, including in the workplace and public places. The Ministry reminded people to use a face mask and avoid social visits to reduce their risk of contracting the virus. The Ministry also recommended that one visit its webpage regularly to view the latest information and instructions related to Covid-19.
