    The Qatari Prime Minister, Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, affirmed that Qatar's preparations to host the World Cup are progressing well and at an accelerated and distinguished pace, despite the difficult circumstances that swept the world due to the Corona virus pandemic "Covid-19".

    Bin Khalifa said, in an interview with Qatari newspapers, that "Qatar has succeeded very quickly in facilitating the delivery of the required materials in coordination with the companies working on the World Cup projects, because they started preparing early.
    He added, "Because there is a possibility that some countries will not be able to vaccinate all their citizens." Qatar will not allow fans to enter stadiums during the 2022 World Cup without receiving a full vaccination against the virus, stressing that his country is seeking to provide one million doses of Corona vaccines to fans of the championship teams.

    He explained, "We are currently negotiating with a company to provide one million vaccines against the Corona virus in order to immunize and vaccinate some of those coming to the World Cup," continuing: "Our main goal in vaccinating some of those coming to Qatar to attend the World Cup is to protect the public health of citizens and residents." .
