BEIRUT: A young emergency doctor Monday became Lebanon’s first medic to die of coronavirus, state media said, as daily infections rise in the eastern Mediterranean country.
Loay Ismail, 32, “died from coronavirus at the Nabih Berri hospital in Nabatiyeh,” southern Lebanon, the National News Agency said.
The Lebanese-Italian Hospital in the nearby city of Tyre where he worked said Ismail contracted the illness “while carrying out his medical and humanitarian duty.”
