        from above link:

        "Waleed Rajikhan, father of Tarek and a consultant doctor at KFH, said that his son, aged 29, was admitted to the hospital one month ago after he got infected with the disease"

        There is only one 29 year old listed from Jeddah. This person was not identified as a health care worker but was in the initial cluster in early April:

        http://www.moh.gov.sa/CoronaNew/Pres...04-10-001.aspx

        So either this doctor was announced, but not identified as a health care worker, or, he is a case that was never announced.

        Either way, not transparent.
