Significant rise of cases continues

Qatar has experienced a rise of around 1,100 new daily cases for several days in a row.

On Sunday, 1,189 new cases were recorded, similar to the 1,130 and 1,311 the two previous days, which pushed the total over 20,000.

The announcement comes on the same day the United Arab Emirates reported a spike of over 700 new cases, compared to around the recent normal of around 500 new daily cases.

The increase in cases may be linked to the easing of restrictions in several Arabian Gulf countries due to Ramadan.

In Saudi Arabia, authorities reported 1,704 new cases as they eased restrictions in the city of Medina on Saturday.
