Qatar to launch unified platform for submitting workers complaints

The Minister of Administrative Development Labour and Social Affairs, has affirmed the commitment of Qatar to continue its relentless efforts aimed at promoting and protecting workers rights and providing a safe and healthy work environment.

Qatar’s people responded very well to vaccination campaign

“More than half a million people have now had both doses and are fully vaccinated, and every week more than 160,000 doses are given. The drive through vaccination centres have been a huge success and so far more than 170,000 people have visited the vaccination centres at Lusail and Al Wakra” said Dr. Soha Al Bayat, Head of Vaccination at the Ministry of Public Health.

More than 1.5 million doses have been administered since the start of the national campaign, and around 44% of the adult population have now received at least one dose of vaccine.

Car dining: A COVID-19 alternative to dine in

Diners in Doha can enjoy restaurant meals from the safety and comfort of their vehicles, as many eateries have started a drive-in service for those who want to enjoy eating out during COVID-19 restrictions. Many restaurants have adopted this approach as a way to continue receiving customers without breaking COVID-19 precautionary measures. Customers can have their food and drinks inside their cars with special setups. Each meal order comes on a customizer tray that fits in the narrow space between the driver seat and steering wheel . Some restaurants serve using small trays that fit in between the driver and passenger seats.

Qatar’s weather Today

Doha will see temperatures between 25 and 35 degrees. Elsewhere in the country it will be between 19 and 38 degrees.

Now today’s COVID update.

In the last 24-hour period, there have been 650 new cases of COVID-19 and 1,527 recoveries. Unfortunately, there were also 7 Covid related deaths. Which means for the ninth day running there has been a decrease in active cases, today dropping by 884 giving us a new current total of 14,766 active cases.

My car is not a Ferrari. But I paid hard earned cash for it and try my best to look after it. So it really upsets me when I return to my car parked in Dar Al Salam Mall and find this large scratch on my door. Obviously from some inconsiderate @#$#! who had hit my car with their car door when they opened it.

Scratched Car Door

I caught a  glimpse of the badly parked car next to mine (they were parked at a sever angle in the space) pulling away just as I returned. A car full of laughing men who had no concern about the damage they (well one of them anyway) had just done to my car. And yes I know it was them for reasons I will not bother to detail here.

It’s a small thing in a world full of tragedy I know. But it still upset me. I’m just glad I don’t own a Ferrari, because it’s bad enough when it happens to my lovely little car.

Anyway enough of my whining, I just hope whoever did this has a really bad day.

 

So today as I was at the #HIA I decided to get to the bottom of the free parking status. I popped into the Car Park Management Office and spoke to a HIA representative there who answered my questions below. I’m a photographer not a journalist so these are not direct quotes as I can’t remember the exact words used, but this is the gist of it-

Q) How long is the free parking for?
A) It’s about to change, and probably next week.

Q) But I had read somewhere online that it was free until the 27th July.
A) It was but because the other car parks aren’t operating yet, this one is reaching over capacity as it houses long stay, short stay and staff parking. And we need to start charging reduce the demand.

Q) So next week you will start charging, any idea when?
A) A formal announcement will be made probably sometime next week announcing the changes.

Q) Any idea what the charges will be?
A) That is being finalised now and will be announced at the same time.

Q) What happens if someone parks their car next week, and when they come back from a month long vacation find that charges have been instigated while they were away.
A) They will not be charged if they entered the car park while it was free.

Free car parking to end at HIA
