Public health and Covid-19 in Qatar

Healthcare in Qatar

The effectiveness of the health care system in Qatar is well above average in a global comparison.
Probably the most important indicator that can be used to summarize the efficiency of all measures is general life expectancy. In other words, the theoretical age that a newborn child could potentially reach today. At the moment this age in Qatar is 79.3 years for men and 82.1 years for women. For comparison: worldwide life expectancy is about 7.9 years lower (men: 70.6 / women: 75.1 years).
A total of 1,807.15 USD per inhabitant is spent annually on health measures at state expense. This corresponds to approximately 2.9% of the gross domestic product. Internationally, this amount averages 1,121.97 USD (~ 9.8% of the respective GDP).

Distribution of the corona virus

Spread of the corona virus in Qatar

Current incidence in the week ending 11/30/2022: 65.1 new infections per 100,000 population
Since the beginning of the pandemic until November 30th, 2022, a total of 478,047 infected people and 685 deaths have been reported in Qatar.
The total of 478,047 infected people currently represents 16.59% of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding November 30th, 2022, was 1,876, for a 7-day incidence of 65.1 cases per 100,000 population. In the same week, one people died from (or with) Covid-19. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 0.1 percent in Qatar.

Current vaccination status

According to official WHO data, a total of 7.60 million vaccine doses have been administered as of November 20th, 2022. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. 2.85 million people have received at least one vaccination (98.9%). The booster vaccination was received by 1.90 million people (65.9%).
2.85 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in Qatar (= 98.9%).
This makes Qatar one of the best-supplied countries in the world. The vaccination rate is higher in 5 countries.
Due to the current corona pandemic, we update the worldwide case numbers daily. A list of all infected and dead people by country can be found on our Covid19 virus topic page.

Medical supplies

Public health and Covid-19 in QatarMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in Qatar is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 1.3 hospital beds per 1000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about two physicians in Qatar, there are about zero doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1000 inhabitants and in the EU even 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality of major known diseases can be reduced to an above-average extent. For example, only about 11 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.

Supply with drinking water

About 96 percent of the population has access to an immediately available, running drinking water supply. At least via springs and wells within a maximum distance of 30 minutes or supplied water, 100% of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. The population is thus better served than average. In a global comparison, only about 74% of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98%. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10%.
