It should be reminded that in view of the spreading coronavirus, last month Qatar’s government pardoned 500 prisoners and released them from prisons. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, Qatar’s government made it mandatory for people leaving their houses to wear masks.
Anyone found violating the order could face imprisonment and a fine up to 55,000 dollars. According to Ministry of Health, about 300,000 locals and immigrants are tested so far. Qatar is facing a surge of Coronavirus cases. The positive aspect is that the vast majority of patients are recovering from the virus.
