The condition of a 59-year-old Qatari man diagnosed with the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (Mers-Co V) is stable, local Arabic daily Al Arab reported.
The patient, receiving treatment at Hamad General Hospital, had returned from Saudi Arabia, where he had probably gone for Umrah, sources told the daily.
The health of his family members, relatives and others he met after returning to Qatar, was also being monitored.
A source at the hospital said the latest case of Mers-Co V should not spark fears among the residents of Qatar as the situation was being closely monitored.
The newly infected man was reported to have experienced the symptoms while abroad and got a check up after returning to Qatar.
The Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has floated a tender for key water lines, Arabic daily Arrayah reported.
The project is part of the corporation’s plans to develop the water sector in the state and its endeavour to provide the best services to the public, according to the report.
The tender pertains to contracts for the supply of materials and the construction, commissioning and inauguration of water lines and channels for services between Umm Baraka and Rawdat Rashid.
