The Ministry of Interior on Monday said the police referred to Public Prosecution 106 people for not wearing masks where they are mandatory.
The police in Qatar have had a busy few weeks since they stepped up their crackdown on people ignoring the country's safeguards to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
Over past weeks, the police referred to the Public Prosecution hundreds of people who didn't wear masks in public.
As per a Cabinet decision, drawn from the Law No. 17 of 1990 regarding infectious diseases and preventive measures, people who do not wear masks outside their homes may face penalties of up to three years in prison and/or QR200,000 fine.
