Qatar to require Covid-19 vaccinations for next year World Cup visitors

Qatar, host of 2022 FIFA World Cup, would require that all visitors of the Gulf country during the global football event are vaccinated against the covid-19 pandemic, Foreign Minister Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani has hinted.
“Right now there are programs under development to provide vaccination proof to all the attendees of the World Cup,” the Qatari top diplomat said during a virtual event.
“We will be able, hopefully, to host a Covid-free event.” The tiny Gulf country according to Bloomberg, has administered 1.2 million jabs – enough for 21.6 percent of its people.
It reported on Tuesday 690 new cases as infections have shot up recently. The new statistics bring the infection toll to 204,289 and total deaths to 445.
