It’s Thursday 4th February
In today’s newspapers
Qatar reimposes COVID-19 restrictions from today
20% of workforce to work from home, 80% in place of work.
Absolutely everyone should wear face masks when leaving home, for any reason, unless you’re driving a car on your own
You must have your Ehteraz application running on a smartphone when leaving home for any reason
No more than five people in close spaces and 15 people in open spaces
Commercial complexes such as shopping malls to operate at 50%. And closure of seating areas in food courts allowing takeaway orders only.
Restaurants and cafes are allowed to serve food and beverages indoors with a maximum capacity of 15%
Cinemas and theatres will continue to operate at a maximum capacity of 30%
And in public parks beaches and the Corniche playgrounds and exercise equipment will be closed, while gatherings will be limited to 15 people
Curbs in four phases if needed says Doctor Al Khal
The four levels are; number one restriction of high risk activities, number 2, for moderate to high risk activities if the infection prevalence has not decreased. Three further restrictions, and four complete closure. Restrictions are to be reviewed every three weeks
Second phase of COVID vaccination soon
The second phase of COVID-19 vaccinations will be announced in a week or two, a top official of the Ministry of Public Health said yesterday. The second phase will have more categories added so that more people will be eligible for vaccination
Qatar’s weather today will be misty to foggy at first with poor visibility in places. Moderate temperatures with some clouds later. And it will be cold by tonight.
Doha will see temperatures between 17 and 24 degrees. Today’s lowest temperature will be in Abu Samra, Al Khor and Messaid all of which will see temperatures as low as 12 degrees.
Now today’s COVID update.
In the last 24-hour period, active cases of COVID-19 have increased by 205, to 5,940.
11,954 COVID-19 tests were performed, and just 3.31% of those tested positive.
Of those testing positive 19 were travellers who are now in quarantine.
