Ministerial decision to abolish the system of reporting absconding workers soon

To safeguard the rights of workers in Qatar, a ministerial decision will be issued soon, to abolish the existing system of reporting absconding workers.

The Assistant Undersecretary for Labour Affairs at the Ministry of Administrative Development, Labour and Social Affairs, Mohamed Hassan Al Obaidli. Has said that an employer will no longer be entitled to report a worker as absconding. They will simply report that an employee has left their job in order to avoid future liability.

Flu shots more important than ever says Dr. Al Khal.

The annual seasonal flu vaccination campaign begins across the country from today.

The vaccine is available for free, at all Primary Healthcare Centres, at Hamad Medical Corporation for patients attending clinic appointments. And at more than 40 private clinics and hospitals as well as semi government healthcare facilities, until March 2021

The flu vaccination may not protect against COVID-19, but it will reduce the risk of developing the flu and flu related complications, and reduce the possibility of getting infected with both the flu and COVID-19 viruses at the same time.

The Katara international hunting and Falcons exhibition opens today.

A total of 112 companies from 13 countries, have flown in to take part in what is considered to be the biggest international event of its kind in the MENA region.

The exhibition is open from 9:00 AM till 2:00 PM then there’s a 2 hour break for disinfection, and open again from 4:00 PM until 11:00 PM. On Friday the exhibition’s operating hours will be from 2:00  to 11:00 PM.

To clarify reports yesterday, regarding entry fees for public parks. The Ministry of Municipality and Environment has said the entry fee is for the zoo in Al Khor Park only. There are more than 90 public parks where entry is still completely free.

The entry fee for the zoo in Al Khor park, has been set at 15 riyals for a full day for adults, and 10 riyals for children and those with special needs. And the fee for feeding the animals at the zoo is 50 riyals. Oooo… that’s a good idea. Anyone wishing to feed my cat can do so for just 10 riyals.

Active cases of COVID-19 are down by 4 on yesterday’s figures at 2,797.

25 of those are travellers coming into the country and testing positive. Who are now in quarantine.

In total 8,844 COVID-19 tests were performed, which is the highest number to date. And just 2.71% of those tested positive, which is the lowest number to date.

Don’t forget to visit our best friends at ‘Hello Qatar’. And get the most out of your time here in Qatar.

That’s all for today. Take care, and I’ll see ya tomorrow.
