Qatar increases COVID-19 safety with electronic inspection system

The government of Qatar continues to improve various measures to curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus, as well as implement new systems in place to facilitate the resumption of operations in the business, travel, education, and wellness sector. All these protocols aim to keep the State of Qatar safe for travelers into the country, as well as the citizens and residents within.

“If you have not yet been vaccinated, act now to protect yourself, your family, and help us return to a normal life. Book your vaccination appointment today,” the MoPH says. Currently, 4,287,922 COVID-19 vaccine doses have been administered. “Thank you to everyone who has taken the vaccine,” the ministry Tweeted.

At the moment, the MoPH website shows that 92.8% of the country’s eligible population, which includes individuals aged 12 years and above, have already received at least one dose. As for two doses, 81.6% already received their shot. The MoPH then states that it’s “important to be cautious as the second wave is not yet over and there are still two highly contagious and highly virulent strains of the virus that are actively circulating in the community”.

While the third phase of the gradual lifting of precautionary restrictions is underway, being careful and keeping safe is still mandatory. “With Covid-19 still a threat to our health here in Qatar, it is important for everyone to play their role in controlling the virus by following precautionary measures,” says the MoPH.

In the same vein, the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has also launched an electronic food safety system in cooperation with the Food Safety and Environmental Health Departments, the Information Systems of the Ministry of Public Health, the General Authority of Customs, and private companies. This aims to manage food controls systems for local, imported, and exported food. It will also conduct risk-based laboratory analysis to make sure that food safety is practiced when it comes to imported and exported food at the country’s various ports. This includes ports at Hamad International Airport, Hamad Sea Port, Ruwais Port, and the Abu Samra land border.

According to Wassan Abdullah al-Baker, director of Food Safety and Environmental Health Department at MoPH, “The Ministry strives to develop the food control system in Qatar, having recently witnessed great development with the establishment of a wide and effective communication system with companies and food establishments and the development of modern electronic risk-based inspection systems and applications through all stages of the food chain.”
