Second Egyptian doctor dies in Kuwait from COVID-19 complications


DUBAI: A second Egyptian doctor has died in Kuwait from the coronavirus, despite having shown signs of recovery, local daily Al-Ahram online reported.
Awad Abdel-Hameed, 50, was admitted into hospital in May after testing positive for COVID-19.
He appeared to recover from the illness and was discharged from hospital, but he later suffered a resurgence of the illness, Egyptian state news agency reported.
Hameed is the second Egyptian doctor to die from the disease. Tarek Hussiein Mekhaymar, 62, died from the disease on May 8.
Kuwait’s total number of coronavirus cases has reached 75,185, including 494 deaths and 66,740 recoveries, according to the health ministry.
Earlier in August, Kuwait banned passenger flights to 31 countries, including Egypt. The suspension came as the country began resuming air travel at a reduced capacity.
