Qatar’s COVID-19 recovery rate is highest among the six Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries.
According to the Gulf Statistics Center, Qatar recorded 99.2 percent recovery rate from the COVID-19, while Saudi Arabia recorded 97.3 percent, Oman 96.5 percent, Kuwait 98.6 percent, Bahrain 96 percent, and the UAE 96.6 percent.
In a statement, MOPH noted that there is clear evidence of the protective effects of the vaccines and the majority of patients being admitted to ICU with COVID-19 are either unvaccinated or had their second dose more than 6 months ago and have not received a booster dose.
It also noted that the latest evidence shows that the country has passed the peak of the third wave of the pandemic, as the number of daily new cases of the virus continues to decrease, noting that the support of the community in adhering to the government restrictions and COVID-19 precautions, in addition to the high vaccination rate, have played a significant role in reaching this stage and stabilize the number of new daily cases.
The MOPH called for caution and continued adherence to restrictions and precautionary and preventive measures, and to contact 16000 helpline immediately if anyone suffering from COVID-19 symptoms, as early detection of the disease makes it easier to obtain appropriate treatment and increases the recovery chances.
