Doctors at the Al-Ahli Hospital in Hebron announced on Thursday morning, the first passing of a Palestinian doctor as a result of Coronavirus.
The Director General of Al-Ahl Hospital, Dr. Youssef Al-Takrouri, confirmed the death of Doctor Harb Radwan (51 years), due to his infection with COVID-19 in late September.
Al-Takrouri added: “The late humanitarian doctor Harb did not suffer from previous diseases, and he had contracted the virus about a week ago. He received treatment at Dura Governmental Hospital for two days before we transferred him to Al-Ahli Hospital, where he stayed in the intensive care unit for about five days, until He passed away this morning.”
According to the Ministry of Health’s official COVID-19 updates website, Palestine has recorded a total of 53,939 cases and close to 46,000 recoveries.
Experts predicted a “tough fall and winter” in Palestine, and recommended citizens to wear a mask and to sanitize regularly in order to curb the spread of the virus.
