Four countries not covered by hotel quarantine exception based on age and health status
The Ministry of Public Health yesterday said people coming to Qatar from the UK, South Africa, the Netherlands and Denmark are not eligible for hotel quarantine exemptions based on their age and health conditions.
Qatar Airways set to resume flights to the United Arab Emirates on January the 27th
Qatar Airways said the airline will fly twice daily to Dubai and once daily to Abu Dhabi.
Qatar’s mobile Internet speed is the fastest in the world
Mobile Internet speeds in Qatar were the fastest in the world in December 2020 according to the speed test global index results released yesterday. The average mobile upload speed globally is 47.2 megabits per second. While here in Qatar the average mobile download speed is a massive 178.01 megabits per second. That’s way over three times the global average.
The Met Office has put out a warning that strong winds are expected today with poor horizontal visibility. Qatar will be generally dusty in place, and relatively cold by tonight.
Doha will see temperatures between 18 and 24 degrees. Abu Samra, Messaid and Al Khor, will all experience today’s lowest temperatures of 13 degrees.
Now today’s COVID update.
In the last 24-hour period, active cases of COVID-19 have increased by 139, to 3,402.
8,930 COVID-19 tests were performed, and just 3.03% of those tested positive.
Of those testing positive 40 were travellers who are now in quarantine.
