Gharafa, Muaither health centres to resume normal services as COVID-19 cases stabilise

-

Now, residents and locals can visit both centres for regular medical services.

Good news for all Gharafa and Muaither residents as the local health centres in both areas announced plans to resume pre-covid services as the country slowly returns to normality. 

For the past months, the two centres were designated testing and holding facilities for all suspect cases in the country.

However, with COVID-19 numbers steadily declining due to the government’s swift response, both centres will now welcome patients for regular services. 

There are currently 2112 active cases in Qatar, according to the ministry of health. In the past month, daily reported cases have been less than 300, indicating a potential second wave is unlikely.
