Until now Qatar had not decided to take drastic measures regarding football. Although earlier in the week, the government had suspended classes at all colleges and universities, kept going as for the king sport, before the outrage of the protagonists.Xavi Hernández, coach of Al Sadd, was the first to cry out to heaven last Thursday, showing his utter perplexity at having to play a game behind closed doors on Friday for the quarterfinals of the Emir Cup. “There is no point in continuing to play because we are talking about a public health issue“Denounced the technician. Fortunately, those responsible for the QSL took good note of the complaints and outrage of the protagonists, and have decided to suspend from today and until next March 29 the matches that had to be played in the League competition. Likewise, the rest of the matches scheduled in other competitions and categories are also postponed. Xavi showed his support for this decision, giving a ‘like’ to the official announcement of the Federation of the suspension of the League through social networks.Thus, the Government of Qatar wants to set an example on prevention measures and, although it does not have any coronavirus victims yet (about 300 infected have been counted so far), maintain a protocol of maximum intensity to prevent the spread of the pandemic. This month The Moto GP World Championship has already been canceled in Doha, although it did run Moto 2 and Moto 3. In any case, we must not forget that Qatar will host the 2022 soccer World Cup and it must be a paradigm in every way, both in safety and prevention.
