SCH launches hotline numbers for food poisoning victims in Qatar
The next time you fall victim of food poisoning, contact the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) at 66740948 or 66740951.
With the rising incidents of food poisoning in Qatar, the SCH has launched the hotline numbers to provide immediate medical assistance to patients. Furthermore, an investigation team will be specially assigned to inspect the food establishment/restaurant against which the complaint was issued, to test the quality of food, the Gulf Times has reported.
Earlier this year, HH the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani issued the Law No. 4 of 2014 that ensures stricter action against violating food outlets including a 60-day closure. As per the new regulation, Baladiya has also started naming violating food outlets on its website to announce their closure.
