Private healthcare staff to be redeployed
Last week the cabinet announced a decision to stop all non-emergency services at private healthcare facilities from April the 1st as part of the COVID-19 response. The decision will provide a boost to the public healthcare sector as private healthcare staff will be freed up from their normal roles and redeployed for COVID-19 support roles within Hamad Medical Corporation and the Primary Healthcare Corporation, the Qatar News Agency has said.
Qatar ramps up COVID response
As Hamad Medical Corporation bars visitors at 7 COVID-19 hospitals and the Primary Healthcare Corporation temporarily suspends PCR swab tests for travellers. Travellers however can continue to get tests done at private sector facilities.
West Bay North Beach project launched to boost tourism
As part of the first phase, six beaches will be delivered for hotels surrounding West Bay to enhance tourism. The project will add a unique entertainment destination for families and tourists in Qatar.
West Bay North beach project combines a public beach and 12 private beaches operated by a number of hotels in one location, on an area of 60,200 square metres, along a stretch 1.5 kilometres.
Qatar’s weather today
