Dawar has been living in the Kingdom for last four years and is currently working with the kingdom’s health ministry in Jeddah as part of a COVID-19 surveillance and data analysis team.

Dawar said that the country’s health ministry gave awards to medical workers in recognition of 100 days of their services in fighting against the virus and that he was one of the foreign doctors to receive the award.
