An ambassador for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar has tested positive for the new coronavirus, the tournament’s organisers said on Thursday.
Retired Qatari midfielder Adel Khamis, 54, “was unfortunately diagnosed with the novel coronavirus, COVID-19,” the Supreme Committee for the organisation of the 2022 tournament wrote in a tweet.
“We wish a speedy to all those affected.”
The number of confirmed infections among those involved in construction for 2022 facilities stands at eight across three stadium projects, but organisers have not given an updated toll since April 17. (Text and photo courtesy Guardian)
