On Wednesday evening, Minister of Health Hamad Hassan announced that he tested positive for coronavirus after 3 cases had been confirmed in his office.
Hassan was reportedly admitted to Saint George hospital, and is in stable condition.
A few hours later, his son Karim Hassan revealed that he too had caught the virus and was being admitted to hospital, citing old health conditions.
Karim bluntly added that there’s no need to panic, a quote his father is famous for.
He also reassured us about the Minister, who appears to be stable.
We hope the Hassans have a quick recovery, and we hope the minister has changed his mind about his prior statement, “everyone who gets COVID-19 did it to themselves”.
