Qatari Health Higher Council registered Monday a new case of the deadly coronavirus after a Qatari man was diagnosed with flu and other symptoms a few days back.
The 29-year-old was diagnosed in the national center for flu, and samples were sent to laboratories abroad for confirmation, the health authority said in a press statement.
The man is in "critical condition," and he is currently under observation at the intensive care unit, the statement added.
The council said it would be taking precautionary measures to monitor and confront the disease, including the isolation of any case it encounters.
