The Min­istry of Health yes­ter­day con­demned ef­forts to dis­credit its ser­vices and ma­lign the in­tegrity of its staff. A state­ment is­sued by the min­istry urged cit­i­zens and res­i­dents not to pay heed to at­tempts to un­der­mine pub­lic con­fi­dence in the coun­try’s health­care ser­vices. The state­ment noted that the min­istry “re­serves the right to mount le­gal ac­tion against all those in­volved in shar­ing un­true and base­less in­for­ma­tion that is detri­men­tal to its rep­u­ta­tion”. The min­istry added that it is open to all sug­ges­tions and com­plaints re­gard­ing the qual­ity of health­care pro­vided in the state.

Ear­lier yes­ter­day, a min­istry of­fi­cial said that the min­istry was han­dling with “full ur­gency and con­cern” al­leged so­cial me­dia re­ports of a for­eign na­tional pos­ing as a doc­tor. The min­istry has made con­tacts with sev­eral bod­ies in or­der to gather in­for­ma­tion be­fore is­su­ing a state­ment re­gard­ing the ru­mors, min­istry spokesman Ah­mad Al-Shatti said in a state­ment. Shatti added that those re­vealed to have been in­volved in the in­ci­dent and al­low­ing it to take place will face le­gal charges.

Sep­a­rately, the In­te­rior Min­istry’s Re­la­tions and Se­cu­rity In­for­ma­tion De­part­ment said the traf­fic de­part­ment has be­gun op­er­at­ing new traf­fic cam­eras on ma­jor roads, in­clud­ing the Fifth Ring Road near Av­enues mall, Qur­tuba; Fourth Ring Road near Surra; and King Fahd Road near Bayan Palace.
