Residents and Citizens urged to stay at home as much as possible during Eid-Al-Fitr

Residents and Citizens urged to stay at home as much as possible during Eid-Al-Fitr

The State of Qatar has taken many precautionary measures to ensure the safety of Citizens and Residents and to limit the spread of novel coronavirus, COVID-19.

Summary of Key messages delivered by Dr. Abdullatif Al Khal, Chair of the National Strategic Group on COVID-19 and Head of the Infectious Diseases Division at HMC during the press conference, held by Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) on May 21, 2020

  • Throughout this month the number of new cases has gradually risen, and the State of Qatar is entering the peak stage of COVID-19.
  • It is encouraging that the number of patients making full recovery from COVID-19 virus is also increasing each day and this week the total number of recovered cases passed 6,000.
  • The number of daily recoveries is increasing in part due to new international guidelines on the time-frame for when patients are no longer contagious, meaning they can be safely discharged sooner.
  • While the majority of patients with COVID-19 experience only mild symptoms, the State of Qatar is witnessing an increase in the number of patients with more severe symptoms.
  • Throughout the past week, every day an average of 20 COVID-19 patients has been admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) due to serious complications.
  • Eid is traditionally a time of the year when we socialize and celebrate with family and friends, but this year is going to be different.
  • It is very important that citizens and expats stay at home and only go out when it is really required for a necessity and while doing so you should follow social and physical distancing measures.
  • We are seeing many examples where the COVID-19 virus is rapidly spreading among the members of the same family, including examples where they do not share a household, due to families visiting each other and socializing during Ramadan.
  • We all have a role to play in successfully overcoming this pandemic – we ask the public to work with the healthcare sector and play their part

Summary of Key messages delivered by Dr. Muna Al Maslamani (Communicable Disease Center Medical Director):

  • Evidence from around the world shows that while anyone can become infected with COVID-19, people with chronic disease are more likely to develop severe symptoms if they get the virus.
  • Data from Intensive Care Units at HMC shows that 49% of patients admitted to ICU with COVID-19 have one or more chronic health conditions.
  • This is because chronic diseases can impair the immune system’s ability to fight off infection and leave the body more susceptible to severe symptoms.
  • The symptoms and their severity differ from case to case for COVID-19 patients and indeed many patients are asymptomatic – meaning they display no symptoms at all.
  • 94% of cases in the state of Qatar are mild or asymptomatic, 5% require hospitalization, and 1% are admitted in Intensive Care Units.
  • We have been using plasma treatment for patients admitted to the Communicable Disease Center, with plasma from patients who have recovered from COVID-19.
  • To date, more than 100 patients have received plasma from around 96 recovered donors and the team is seeing the number of donations from recovered patients rise each week.
  • The most critically ill COVID-19 patients are currently being treated at the Intesive Care Units at Hazm Mebeireek General Hospital and severely ill COVID-19 patients often require mechanical ventilation. A small percentage – the most severely ill – will require extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) therapy.
  • It is clear that COVID-19 affects people with chronic disease in a much more serious way than other people – and so it is extremely important for people with chronic disease to stay at home as much as possible and follow preventive measures to protect themselves from catching the virus.
