Corona In Six Gulf Arab States Has Doubled In Three Months
The number of recorded novel coronavirus cases in the six Gulf Arab states has doubled in three months to over 800,000.
All countries have lifted internal curfews and lockdowns, but restrictions on gatherings and foreign travel remain, and social distancing measures are being enforced.
According to a Reuters tally, since reaching 100,000 cases in mid-May, the time it takes for infections to double has widened from half a month, to one month to three months. A longer doubling rate indicates slower growth in the infection rate.
