Healthcare practitioners’ campaign urges people to ‘stay home, save lives’

A group of healthcare leaders in Qatar, including Dr. Yousef Al Maslamani, Medical Director at Hamad General Hospital, joined the global , 'Stay home, save lives' campaign encouraging the public to help to curb the spread of the COVID- 19 by limiting their social interactions.

The social media campaign by Ministry of Public Health has published a series of photographs of healthcare practitioners and others at the forefront of the COVID -19 fight in the country. The photos, posted on social media featured healthcare practitioners holding a sheet of paper that read messages urging the public to stay at home.

“We are at work for you. Please stay home for us,” the posters reads in different languages English, Arabic and others. As the number of COVID-19 coronavirus continue to grow, one of the best courses of action is self-isolation to slow the spread of the virus.

As a preventative measure most people have decided to practice social distancing as well. To limit the contact with people who may be infected with COVID-19, many have opted to work from home and avoid public spaces entirely by self-isolating. And this is something that nurses and doctors have recommended people to do through the #StayHome campaign, and hope citizens are following their calls for help.
