The man has been transferred to Rumailah Hospital where he will continue to receive treatment, including physiotherapy and rehabilitation.
"Thank God the patient has recovered from his Covid-19 diagnosis in addition to a fracture in his thigh bone. Our teams here at Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital performed the necessary surgery to repair his femur and we also treated him for Covid-19. He has been discharged from our hospital and will now continue his recovery and receive physiotherapy at Rumailah Hospital," said Hussein Abdulaziz al-Ishaq, executive director of HMGH.
Al-Ishaq said major efforts are being made to treat Covid-19 infected people according to an integrated treatment system under the supervision of HE the Minister of Public Health Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari, and Chair of the Covid-19 System-Wide Incident Command Committee (SWICC) at HMC, Dr Saad al-Kaabi, and Medical Director of the National Centre for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR) and a member of SWICC, Dr Mohamed Salem.
