Largest batch of 530,000 vaccines arrived in Qatar
Qatar Airways cargo has crossed a milestone, transporting over 1.5 million COVID-19 vaccine doses into Qatar. With the largest batch of more than 530,000 Pfizer and Moderna vaccines arriving last Sunday from Amsterdam.
Globally the airline has transported close to 20 million COVID-19 vaccine doses.
All Primary Healthcare Corporation non-essential services go virtual
The Primary Healthcare Corporation has announced that all non essential services will only be conducted through virtual consultations using both telephone and video. The decision is effective from April the 4th.
“given the current rise in COVID-19 cases, the changes have been put into effect as a precautionary measure to keep the community safe, by minimising exposure for both patients and healthcare workers as we have a large number of people visiting health centres for vaccinations. To limit the number of patients visiting health centres, Primary Healthcare Corporation teams will call patients to reschedule any existing appointments for non essential services by converting them to virtual consultations ”, said Doctor Samya Ahmed Al Abdullah, Executive Director of Operations of the Primary Healthcare Corporation.
More than 650 items available at reduced prices for Ramadan

This year’s list includes all essential consumer goods needed during this holy month, such as flour, sugar, rice, macaroni, oil, milk, chicken and other food and non-food items whose consumption increases during the holy month.
