The director of the airport’s health office, Dr. Hasan Mallah, reassured via Annahar that the patient was a suspected case and not a patient, which eradicates the assumptions that he could have infected others on his way.
In fact, the patient had sought the RHUH emergency department at feeling symptoms similar to those of coronavirus.
Dr. Mallah assured that his fate “will be determined based on the result of the coronavirus test. If it comes out negative, he will be allowed to travel to the country he was heading to, Canada.”
“If it comes out positive he will have to stay in hospital pending his recovery, as is the case of the other patients,” Dr. Mallah added.
