Abstract: 
Qatar has experienced one of the most intense SARS-CoV-2 epidemics with >55,000 laboratory-confirmed infections per million population. The country’s robust investment in epidemiology research and primary data collection allowed the conduct of a series of studies that yielded novel and influential data on this infection. In this presentation, an overview of the insights learned about SARS-CoV-2 epidemiology will be provided with a focus on epidemic dynamics, reinfection, infection severity and fatality rates, and herd immunity.
