Data of the National Program for Vaccination against (Covid-19)
– 3942271 doses of (Covid-19) vaccines have been given to community members since the beginning of the program Vaccination.
– 3672 doses of (Covid-19) vaccines were administered during the past 24 hours.
– 87.8% of those eligible for the (Covid-19) vaccine in the State of Qatar received at least one dose of this vaccine.
– 98.6% of the elderly over the age of 60 – who is considered one of the groups most vulnerable to severe complications caused by infection with the (Covid-19) virus – received at least one dose of the vaccine, while 93.8% of them received both doses of the vaccine.
The current situation of the (Covid-19) pandemic
– The positive results of the restrictions imposed by the Corona pandemic (Covid-19) and the increase in the frequency of vaccination against the virus coupled with the unparalleled support provided by the public have all led to a decrease in the daily infection rates of Corona (Covid-19) infection in the State of Qatar during the past few weeks.
Despite the decrease in daily infection rates, we must take the utmost caution, considering that the second wave of the pandemic is still present, especially with the outbreak of two mutated strains of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the country, which are considered more virulent and faster spreading.
The third phase of the gradual lifting of precautionary restrictions began on Friday, 9 July, and is part of a four-stage plan to be implemented over the coming months.
The beginning of the implementation of each phase and the period of its effect depend on the indicators of the pandemic, which in turn depend to a large extent on the extent to which members of the public adhere to the current precautionary measures, imposed restrictions, and directives issued by the competent government agencies.
During the current situation, everyone must practice social distancing and should wear masks in public.
