In Qatar, Covid is down 87% to 19 in a month-Doha News

In the Gulf countries, the number of cases reported daily has been steadily decreasing over the past month. A big measure.

Qatar’s Ministry of Health records 86 percent Immersion Covid-19 cases in the past month, according to new figures by the Ministry of Public Health.

On Monday, February 21, authorities reported 416 new cases of infection, reducing the total number of active cases to 5,532. Over the last 10 days, the number of cases reported daily has decreased by almost 43%.

Despite vaccination efforts, Qatar had the highest daily infection rates last month when health authorities reported more than 3,000 cases per day. However, after implementing some precautions and expanding the impetus for vaccination, the numbers began to steadily decline.

Last week, authorities reported less than 500 cases and more recovered cases daily.

“The latest data appear to indicate that we have reached the peak of this third wave as the number of new daily cases is currently declining,” the ministry said in its daily COVID-19 report. “But the virus is still prevalent in Qatar, with numerous new cases being identified each day, and it is very important that people continue to act cautiously and follow restrictions and precautions,” he said. ..

During the week of February 7th to 13th, more than 16 million new cases and just under 75,000 new deaths were reported worldwide, unlike last month when Omicron infections increased exponentially.

More vaccines, fewer cases

Vaccination efforts have expanded significantly in the last few months in the region to combat the spread of the virus and restore normal conditions.

According to the GCC Statistics Center, new figures reveal that the number of doses given in GCC countries exceeded 108 million and 30,000.

In Qatar, 6,222,845 vaccinations have been given since the launch of the vaccination campaign in December 2020, bringing the total number of fully vaccinated people to 87.7%.

On the other hand, about 1,146,672 booster shots have been carried out so far.
