As of April 13th 2020, Qatar has 2979 positive cases of Covid-19. Like a number of other countries, Qatar was caught off guard by the novel respiratory virus. Initially assessed as posing a low risk to the country, the first limited spate of cases offered a false sense of security. These were mostly Qatari nationals arriving back from Iran, where the outbreak had already escalated considerably. The first reported case was a Qatari national who had been in Iran. He was quarantined on approximately the 27th February.
