Muscat: A Pakistani blue collar worker is battling for his life against suspected, potentially contagious, brain fever at the Royal Hospital’s intensive care unit.
The Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) Hospital medics said Shahid Muhammad Nawas is suffering from tuberculosis and reportedly, meningitis, too. The 25-year-old patient was admitted to SQUH on Sunday night.
“Preliminary results point to meningitis. The final lab results are yet to come. He was shifted to Royal Hospital yesterday,” the SQUH medics said.
