She was admitted to intensive care unit at a hospital on 23 August and died on 31 August," the SCH said in a press statement. It pointed that the second case was a 59-year-old Qatari citizen who felt the symptoms while abroad. Upon his arrival on 15 August he was checked up and diagnosed with the disease, but he recovered.
The third is a 29-year-old Qatari citizen who suffers from one chronic disease and several risk factors. He felt the symptoms on 17 August. He is in a critical condition and is receiving treatment in the intensive care unit, noted the statement.
It said that all those who have exposure to the patients were tested in Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) laboratory and their diagnoses were negative, adding that a fact-finding team is monitoring and giving advice to all those who have exposure to the patients in accordance with World Health Organization recommendations.
The SCH emphasized that surveillance and monitoring procedures are always tightening up and infection control for all cases of acute respiratory infections are also tightened up, stressing on continuing to check up all those who have exposure to confirmed cases in cooperation with Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) and other medical service providers.
