Qatar on Monday recorded 1,751 new confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19), with a record 1,193 patients recovering from the virus in a day, bringing the total recoveries to 10,363.
Sadly, three people succumbed to the virus, bringing the death toll in the country to 26.
In a statement, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) said 22 people were admitted to intensive care due to the virus in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of cases in the intensive care to 202.
The ministry stated that the new cases are expatriate workers who were infected with the virus as a result of contact with individuals who were previously infected, in addition to recording new cases of infection among groups of workers in different regions.
The new cases have been identified after conducting investigations by the research and investigation teams of the Ministry of Public Health that contributed to the early detection of cases.
Cases of infection have also increased among citizens and residents as a result of contact with infected family members who had been infected in the workplace or through visits and family gatherings.
The new confirmed cases of infection have been kept in complete isolation in various medical facilities across the country where they are receiving the necessary healthcare according to the health status of each case.
The ministry revealed that the number of positive cases among citizens and residents witnessed a significant rise, with the number of infections relating to family gatherings, visits, and sharing meals together with relatives and extended families has doubled, as they ignored the preventive measures recommended by the relevant authorities in the country, including non-visits and social distancing.
The ministry stated that the three new deaths were a 62-year-old, a 52-year-old and 64-year-old, all of whom were receiving treatment in intensive care.
The ministry offered condolences and sympathy to the families of the deceased.
The MoPH urged anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 infection to quickly contact the unified helpline (16000), or go to one of the virus testing centres, as the earlier the disease is detected, the easier and faster the chances of recovery from it.
