Senior Hamas official contracts COVID-19

Senior Hamas official Maher Salah has been infected with the novel coronavirus, the terror group says in a statement.

Salah, who is Hamas’s director of diaspora affairs, remains in good health, Hamas says.

It was not clear where Salah is currently based. In Gaza, only three active cases of the novel coronavirus remain, all of which have been successfully contained in quarantine centers for new arrivals to the Gaza Strip.
