The first Middle-East coronavirus cases were reported in UAE on the 29th of January 2020 when a family of four locals had contracted the disease on a trip to Wuhan, since then the number had only slowly grown to a total of 13 confirmed coronavirus cases in the whole of UAE, of which 3 have since ‘recovered’ and only two are in critical condition.

Subsequently single cases were detected in Egypt, Lebanon and two in Israel.
On the 19th Of February, Iran announced its first two cases of the coronavirus, of which both died the next day. (Sources are saying that the coronavirus infections were already manifesting in Iran much earlier but local authorities and doctors were ‘mistaking’ it for another influenza strain.)
As the coronavirus epidemic spiraled out of control in Iran over the last few days with more than 12 deaths now (Monday 24th February as of 4pm Bangkok time) and more than 47 confirmed coronavirus infected cases. (in reality the figures are much higher), the Covid-19 disease has now spread to Iraq, (I case) , Kuwait (3 cases, ) Bahrain (1 case) and Afghanistan (1 case).
Though the numbers look small, the worrying factor is that there are thousands of suspected cases that are being investigated all over in each country with the majority in Iran.
The lack of sufficient test kits and adherence to proper protocols is making diagnosis an issue while certain countries do not even have testing facilities such as Afghanistan, Iraq and Lebanon.
The Middle-East could be the next hotbed region if coordinated efforts are not put into place which is most unlikely considering that there is a long history of mistrust and conflict between each other in the region.
The new cases in Kuwait and Bahrain involve people who had visited Iran, which has reported 47 cases of the covid-19 disease.
The state news agency KUNA said that Kuwait detected the coronavirus in three people among 700 who had been evacuated on Saturday from the north-eastern Iranian city of Mashhad
Kuwait government officials identified them as a 53-year-old Kuwaiti man, a 61-year-old Saudi man and a 21-year-old whose nationality was unclear. It said the Kuwaiti and Saudi had been asymptomatic while the third person showed initial symptoms.
Meanwhile, the health ministry in Bahrain on Monday said a Bahraini national who arrived from Iran had been diagnosed with the disease and that &ld quo;all necessary measures have been taken with individuals in contact with the patient”.
Also Afghanistan’s minister of public health said on Monday the country had identified its first case of coronavirus, following dozens of cases of the disease and twelve deaths in neighbouring Iran.
Ferozuddin Feroz, the minister of public health, told a press conference in Kabul one of three suspected cases had been confirmed in the western province of Herat. He announced a state of emergency in the province, which borders Iran, where dozens of cases of the disease have been confirmed and twelve people have died.
Qatar Airways announced it will quarantine passengers arriving from Iran and South Korea who show symptoms for the virus. Passengers who show symptoms will be transferred to the communicable disease centre at the Hamad Medical Corporation. All incoming passengers from Iran and South Korea whose final destination is Doha and are showing no symptoms will be asked to stay in home isolation or a quarantine facility for 14 days.
