The DHA) also announced the separation of all clinics known medically and internationally as fever clinics or infectious disease clinics in its primary health care centres from other specialised medical clinics, in order to strengthen the prevention system adopted by the Authority to combat communicable diseases and epidemics.

The move aims to provide a safe health care journey for patients across all facilities.

 Al Qutami also added the Al Mizhar, Al Safa and Al Mamzhar clinics will no longer accept patients at the Fever Clinic and patients are redirected to go to the other DHA primary healthcare centres instead if they get a fever or develop any infectious disease symptoms.

The Authority's actions in this regard were undertaken to ensure the safety and health of patients who visit DHA’s primary healthcare centres especially the elderly, children, pregnant women, People of Determination and patients with chronic diseases.
