Qatar’s ruler called the Algerian President to inquire about developments in the North African country over the pandemic which has deeply affected the gas and oil-rich country also facing economic hardship owing to oil price crash.
Sheikh Tamin promised Qatar’s support to help overcome the pandemic, a statement from the Algerian presidency said.
Algeria is one of the hard hit countries in the Arab world where the disease is still spreading despite a global slowdown. Algeria Sunday confirmed 2,629 cases and 375 deaths caused by covid-19.
