The deceased were patients aged 53, 58 and 64 respectively, said the ministry, adding that the three were receiving the necessary medical care.

The ministry also said that all the new cases have been placed under isolation and are receiving necessary healthcare according to their health status.

The ministry noted that Qatar has succeeded in tackling the pandemic and that is evident from the steady downward path of the graph of daily new cases of the virus in the country.

Though the restrictions are being lifted and numbers of cases are going, these do not mean that the pandemic is over in Qatar, MoPH cautioned. People still are being admitted to hospitals with moderate to severe Covid-19 symptoms.

Unless all precautionary measures are followed, the country may experience a second wave of the virus as it is already happening in some countries across the world, MoPH cautioned.
