The Ministry of Public Health (MOPH) Sunday announced 171 new confirmed cases of coronavirus during the last 24 hours, of which 125 are from community cases and 46 from travellers returning from abroad.
The ministry also recorded 211 recoveries during the same period, bringing the total number recoveries in Qatar to 135,862.
In a statement, the MoPH all new cases have been placed in isolation and are receiving the necessary healthcare.
The ministry said measures to tackle Covid-19 in Qatar have succeeded in flattening the curve and limiting the spread of the virus and the number of new daily cases and hospital admissions is continuing to decline each week.
"Qatar's proactive and extensive testing of suspected cases has enabled us to identify a high number of positive cases in the community," the ministry said.
"Qatar has one of the lowest Covid-19 death rates in the world," it said, adding, "this is a result of very high quality of care provided thorough the public healthcare sector, Qatar's young population, proactive testing to identify cases early, expanding hospital capacity, especially intensive care, to ensure all patients receive the medical care they need and protecting the elderly and those with chronic diseases."
Anyone suffering from Covid-19 symptoms should either contact 16000 helpline or go directly to one of the designated health centres to get tested: Muaither, Rawdat Al Khail, Umm Slal, or Al Gharafa Health Centres, the ministry said.
"This is important as the earlier the disease is detected the easier it will be to receive the right treatment and recover from it."
