The International Road Transport Union has officially announced the implementation of a TIR agreement for transit in Qatar under the TIR system.

With Qatar set to host a series of major international events in the coming years, including the 2022 FIFA World Cup, TIR will help speed up supply chains, ensuring the secure and timely delivery of goods to and from the country in the GCC region and worldwide. TIR, the only global transit system allows goods to be shipped from one country to another in sealed compartments that are controlled by customs via a multilateral, mutually recognised an UN backed system.

Fuel prices go up for June

Both Premium and Super grades go up by 5 dirhams each, meaning that premium is now 1.85 riyals per litre, and super is now 1.9 riyals per litre. Diesel increases by an additional 10 dirhams bringing that to 1.75 riyals per litre.

38-kilometre-long shared pedestrian and cycling path opens on Al Khor road

The public works authority Ashghal has opened the shared pedestrian and cycling tracks on the eastern side of Al Khor road, integrating with the Olympic Cycling Track on the western side, giving more opportunities for hobbyists to practise cycling and jogging in complete safety. The track is 38 kilometres long and 6 metres wide, passing through 18 underpasses, to provide a smooth and uninterrupted movement. In order to facilitate better use of the tracks there are 80 cycle parking points, 100 benches and 20 resting areas along the road. I would need every single one of those.

It’s Sunday 30th May

In today’s newspapers

The Ministry of Public Health approves 2 new COVID-19 tests at private health facilities

Private healthcare centres can now perform rapid antigen testing and antibody testing.

Antigen testing offers a fast and reasonably accurate way of detecting the COVID-19 virus. It requires a nasal swab, and the results are usually available within 15 minutes.

Antibody testing is used to detect immunity against COVID-19 as the result of a previous infection or vaccination. These tests can be done in private clinics by nurses, physicians, or other healthcare providers. It requires a drop of blood to be taken and the results are usually available within 15 minutes.

Polymer chain reaction or PCR testing can detect COVID-19 in the early acute infectious stages and during the prolonged shedding stage that is often found in recovering patients. PCR testing is considered the golden standard in diagnosing acute infections of COVID-19.

Classes to resume at training and educational centres today

Private schools and kindergartens are now allowed to choose between providing blended or remote learning.

Hamad International Airport handles 200 million passengers since opening in 2014
