A 20-year-old male was bit by a venomous snake earlier today and rushed by Civil Defence Department's cadres to the Zarqa Government Hospital, an official source at the hospital reported.

The patient was provided with the necessary medical treatment before being admitted to an intensive care unit (ICU), indicating that his condition is fairly poor.

Last month, the Civil Defense Directorate (CDD) dealt with an incident involving a two-and-a half meter snake in the southern governorate of Tafilah. Soon after, the CDD advised the public not to approach exotic animals as they could be dangerous.
