Ministry of Public Health today announced that the total number of patients to have recovered from COVID-19 in Qatar has reached 1012. The Ministry also announced the registration of 929 new cases of the virus.
The Ministry stated that the total number of recovered cases reached 1012 after registering 83 new recovered cases in the last 24 hours. The Ministry of Public Health also recorded 929 new confirmed cases of COVID-19.
Most of the new cases registered are due to expatriate workers that work in different occupations who have been in contact with previously discovered cases, as well as recording new cases of COVID-19 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 remaining new cases infected with the virus have come from citizens and residents who have contracted the virus from members of their families, who in turn had contracted the virus through their workplaces or other places where they had been exposed to infected people. All the new infected cases have been quarantined where they are receiving the necessary medical care.
The Ministry of Public Health 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 of groups of contacts with people who have been confirmed with the disease previously. This early detection of many cases of infection helps reduce the spread of the virus further.
