It’s Monday 2nd November, this is the news in 60 seconds

In today’s newspapers

Qatar Central Bank issues new dictates’ on bounced cheques.

If an individual or business writes a cheque that cannot be honoured due to insufficient funds, then that individual or business will be added to a Central Bank list that holds the details of those who have bounced cheques.

When a customer requests a new cheque book, banks must refer to this list and can only issue a new chequebook if the customer is not on the list.

IPA Qatar and UBS sign an MoU for a financial services hub in Qatar.

Students attend classes following a rotational system

The new system has abolished the choice between in person attendance and distance learning.

Ministry teams to conduct inspections of schools on a daily basis.

The maximum number students allowed in a class is 15. And they must maintain social distancing, and wear face masks.  

Active cases of COVID-19 are down by 37 to 2,704 and that’s a new all time low.

29 of those are travellers coming into the country and testing positive. And they are now in quarantine.

In total 6,435 COVID-19 tests were performed. And just 2.55% of those tested positive.
