By: Trish Lentejas
Qabayan Radio 94.3 together with Malayalam 98.6 FM, Radio Olive 106.3 FM, and Radio Suno 91.7 FM had the privilege to interview the Director of Public Health, Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Thani, today, 13th March 2020.
Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Thani discussed the significance of proper hygiene, and how it is always important that the public is well-informed about COVID-19. Furthermore, he highlighted the importance of hope and encouraged everyone to always look at the bright side; for instance, it is good that the State of Qatar has been providing all the capabilities available to prevent the spread of the virus and that the relatively high number of reported cases is due to the early and distinguished monitoring carried out by MOPH.
In times like this, Dr. Al-Thani also reminded everyone that we need not panic, for Qatar and the Ministries are doing everything that they can to provide the highest level of healthcare that the citizens need amidst the pandemic. In turn, what we can do as responsible citizens is to work as a team with our government which is through applying protective measures to keep ourselves and those around us safe against the threat of the virus.
Qabayan Radio 94.3, as part of the media, focuses on its responsibility to deliver accurate information to its listeners. In addition to helping the public be well-informed, we believe it is also our duty to spread positivity in light of and despite this issue, just as how Sheikh Dr. Mohammed bin Hamad Al-Thani encouraged everyone to do.
