First Palestinian doctor dies from Covid-19

Doctor Harb Radwan (51), from the town of Kharas in Hebron, lost his battle with the novel coronavirus at Al-Ahli Hospital.

Occupied Hebron (QNN) – The Ministry of Health announced today it has lost the first Palestinian doctor to Covid-19 since the pandemic made its way to Palestine.

Doctor Harb Radwan (51), from the town of Kharas in Hebron, lost his battle with the novel coronavirus at Al-Ahli Hospital. He was infected with the virus while working to save the lives of others.

The Palestinian Doctors Syndicate mourned Radwan, and said that “his death is a loss to humanity.”

Radwan is the first practicing doctor to die from Covid-19 in Palestine. Last month in Gaza Strip, the retired doctor Mohammed Abu Harbid (68) died from the disease.

The Palestinian Foreign Ministry said that the pandemic killed a number of Palestinian doctors abroad, in Russia, Spain, and Italy.
