Daraa National Hospital Director: No Coronavirus cases at the hospital

Daraa, SANA – Director General of Daraa National Hospital Dr. Bassam al-Hariri said that the rumors about Coronavirus cases at the hospital are baseless.

In a statement to SANA’s reporter on Friday, al-Hariri said the patients who had been admitted to the hospital in the past few days were suffering from simple respiratory infections, and they were discharged and are receiving the necessary medications at their homes as their cases do not require staying at the hospital.

He also said that the hospital has stepped up sanitization procedures for patients, visitors, and workers as a precautionary measure.

Posts on social media pages claimed on Thursday that there are 8 patents with Coronavirus cases at Daraa National Hospital, which caused concerns among citizens.
