Qatar promises football World Cup 2022 will be held.
Qatar, the country which is scheduled to host the football World Cup 2022 has said that in spite of all the things happening because of the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2022 World Cup will be held on schedule.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Al Thani said:
“We believe that Qatar is working very closely and strongly with different healthcare organisations to make sure to deliver a healthy and safe World Cup and believe that this is part of the cure for the world to be back together in a happy manner. There is an ongoing exercise with the organising committee, with different stakeholders, to make sure that all the health and safety standards are applied in all our stadiums, so it’s still something ongoing.”
Qatar has a small population of around 2.8 million, but the number of coronavirus infections in the country is high. Still, Qatar has managed to keep the deaths due to Novel Coronavirus, low. There were around 68,790 cases and 54 deaths in Qatar, due to New Coronavirus, at the time of writing this.
On Thursday, the Emir of Qatar participated in the vaccine conference which was hosted by Boris Johnson. Qatar pledged $20m (£15.5m) to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance
Sheikh Mohammed added:
“We believe that [Thursday’s] conference is also a representation of different countries commitment for multilateralism and we believe it’s important to look at the reform of these organisations. But it’s more important to preserve them and to make sure that they are working effectively respond to the challenges that our countries are facing.”
Time alone will reveal whether or not the football World Cup 2022 will be hosted on schedule by Qatar!
