It’s Monday 15th March
In today’s newspapers
Awqaf Ministry say that COVID-19 vaccine can be taken while fasting during Ramadan
They say that because the vaccine is taken intramuscularly and not taken orally, and is not nutritious. It is therefore permissible for a fasting person to take the vaccine against COVID-19 during the day, in Ramadan.
US weighs 3-foot distancing rule
The United states top pandemic adviser said yesterday that authorities were considering cutting their social distancing rule to three feet, which is one metre. A move that would change a key tenet of the global fight against COVID-19. Doctor Anthony Fauci said experts at the Centres for Disease Control we’re examining a Massachusetts study that found “no substantial difference” in covid cases in schools observing 6 foot, and three foot rules. Asked whether that meant that a 3 foot separation was sufficient, Fauci replied, “it does indeed”
For today’s weather
It’s going to be hazy in places at first becoming moderate temperature later with some scattered clouds, relatively cold by tonight.
Doha will be between 16 and 26 degrees. Elsewhere in Qatar it will be between 11 and 27 degrees.
Now today’s COVID update.
In the last 24-hour period, there have been 485 new cases of COVID-19 and 321 recoveries. Which means there’s been an increase of 163 cases giving us a new current total of 11,789 active cases.
