Public Health Ministry Issues Shopping Advice

Qatar’s Commerce and Industry Ministry has issued advice on what individuals should do after shopping and going home. They should take their shoes off outside their houses and dispose of face masks and gloves immediately after removing them safely. They should take off their clothes and wash them separately on 60 to 70 Degrees. In addition, they should empty and dispose of their bags and wash all cans, plastic and glass containers with soap and water before arranging or using them. They may spray disinfectants on food product labels before using them. They should wash their hands with soap and water for 20 to 30 seconds once they have disposed of bags or opened cans and used them. They should also wash and sterilise fruit and vegetables by soaking them in water and vinegar. Vegetables like lettuce, parsley, mint and green onions may be soaked in water for between 10 and 15 minutes and then washed well and dried. Finally, they should clean and sterilise surfaces which have come into contact with bags and use sterilisers or watered-down chlorine. Full story
