An expatriate living in Qatar had died after he contracted MERS, bringing to three the number of deaths from the coronavirus in the Gulf state, health authorities said Tuesday.
The 61-year-old man had also suffered from "chronic illnesses," said Qatar's Supreme Council of Health in a statement published by the official QNA news agency.
Another foreign man, aged 48, who had contracted the virus, was discharged from a Qatar hospital after being successfully treated for three weeks, the same statement said.
Neither of the two men were identified.
