PLO leader Erekat undergoes bronchostomy after contracting the virus | Palestine

Days after being hospitalized for COVID-19, Saeb Erekat remains intubated and placed in machinery which provides blood oxygenation.

Doctors treating senior Palestinian official Saeb Erekat for COVID-19 have performed a bronchostomy to examine the condition of his respiratory system, according to his daughter.

Salam Erekat said on Twitter on Wednesday that her father remained intubated and tied to an ECMO machine, which does the lung work by transferring oxygen to the blood.

She said it would take a few days to get the results. Hopefully things will get a better way. Pray for my father, said Salam Erekat, who himself is a doctor.

Erekat, 65, was transferred Sunday from his home in Jericho on the occupied West Bank to the Israel Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian negotiating prime minister, who is the secretary general of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), tested positive for respiratory disease on October 8.

There is an increased concern about Erekats vulnerability to COVID-19 due to chronic health problems involving his respiratory system. In 2017, he underwent a lung transplant in the United States.

The hospital has said he is in critical but stable condition and that his medical team is consulting with experts around the world to deal with the case. She says the Erekats case is particularly complicated given his history of health issues.

A member of Fatah, the most powerful faction within the PLO, the Erekat have been one of the most profiled faces of the Palestinian leadership for decades, especially to international audiences.

Erekat has served as a senior negotiator in talks with Israel and often appears in the international media. He was also a senior adviser to the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat and current president Mahmoud Abbas.

A proponent of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Erekat has been a leading Palestinian voice in opposing Israel’s illegal policy of occupying territory captured in the 1967 Middle East war.

There have been 48,129 confirmed cases of the new coronavirus in the illegally occupied West Bank and Gaza, including 427 deaths.
