A Bangladeshi citizen died from coronavirus infection in Qatar on Saturday.
The country's health ministry said Qatar recorded its first death from the coronavirus, a Bangladeshi resident, and 28 more cases to take its total to 590 infections.
The 57-year-old Bangladeshi national was suffering from a previous chronic disease, state news agency QNA reported.
The majority of cases in Qatar have been diagnosed among migrant labourers, and authorities have locked down a large section of an industrial zone where many live and work.
