Qatar to further ease curbs from July 1 as coronavirus infections pass peak
Qatar aims to further ease its coronavirus curbs from July 1, authorities have said, as infections have passed their peak and the rate is subsiding. They will allow the limited reopening of restaurants, beaches and parks.
The nation of about 2.8 million people has the second highest tally of infections among the six Gulf Arab states, behind much larger neighbor Saudi Arabia. It announced 750 new cases on Sunday, taking its total to 94,413, with 110 deaths, Reuters reported.
Public and private gatherings of a maximum of five people will be allowed. Employees in the public and private sectors can work from offices at 50 percent capacity, officials say.
