The numbers continue to decline. This week, MoPH has recorded 853 new cases from 16 September (Thursday) to 22 September (Wednesday), 108 cases lower than the recorded cases last week (961). Out of 853 cases, 585 are from the community and the remaining 268 are from travellers coming to Qatar.
This brings the total number of recorded cases in Qatar since the start of the pandemic to 235,907. Out of this number, only 1,575 are considered actives cases as 233,728 have already recovered and the number of deaths stayed at 604.
In terms of vaccination, the government of Qatar has already administered 4,675,941 vaccine doses since the start of the National COVID-19 Vaccination Program. 80.9% of the total population have already received two doses.
In recent weeks, the combined impact of COVID-19 restrictions and increasing vaccination rates, and the support of the community have resulted in a consistent reduction in the number of new daily infections in the country, according to health officials.
However, the public is still reminded that it is important to be cautious as the second wave is not yet over and there are still two highly contagious and highly virulent strains of the virus that are actively circulating in the community.
