Via a tweet on #Corona, a report from Derwaza News in Kuwait: Newspaper: the death of a foreigner suspected afflicted with "Corona". Excerpt from a Google translation:
Sources healthy, doctors hospital emergency department of communicable diseases refused to extradite the case of expatriate foreign nationality in the forties, he had arrived at the emergency door deceased inside an ambulance belonging to a private hospital, and a suspect was afflicted Pfirs Corona.
The sources pointed out for "Kuwait", that an ambulance to a private hospital has rushed speeding to an emergency hospital for communicable diseases, carrying one of the critical situations that have undergone treatment so the hospital, and when the situation deteriorated, and supervised patient on the paradox of life, took refuge in the private hospital to convert it to a hospital disease force, but God forbid, had previously been the moment the patient arrives to the emergency, "in force", have not been hospitalized, because he already had left the life.
The sources indicated that, during an emergency physician and intensive care doctor to "force" examines the patient inside the ambulance, it is revealed that he died. Consequently, refused to receive the case, citing that the private hospital does not have to notify officials of the hospital or the situation of communicable diseases reported, as is customary, to be ready to receive her.
And at the same, medical sources wondered about the extent to which private hospitals to comply with the decisions of the ministry on suspected cases of Corona and handling.
And whether there are some interpretations of individual from some private doctors to deal with suspected cases of Pfirs Coruna, despite the existence of clear decisions from the ministry in the light of the emergency on the subject, and to identify the hospital for communicable diseases as a specialist to receive cases and handled by the Rapid Reaction Group.
The center of this incident, which tried many of the medical community by secrecy, but the indicators are moving to conduct a thorough investigation of the circumstances of that case, and the circumstances surrounding them since entering the hospital sector, and even the arrival of the deceased communicable diseases.
I'm as baffled as you are. This may have been a genuine MERS case, but we'll never know until the Kuwaiti authorities report on it. If nothing else, this report indicates some anxiety among Kuwaiti healthcare workers.
