A 70-year-old tourist from Maharashtra India died of COVID-19 at a HOSPITAL in Srinagar, officials said on Wednesday.

The tourist was admitted to the Chest Disease Hospital Srinagar on March 30 after he complained about breathlessness and showed other COVID-19 related symptoms.

Confirming the death, a senior doctor at the hospital said that the patient from Pune, Maharashtra was suffering from “severe COVID-19 Pneumonia”.

“He was referred from SMHS hospital and was admitted here,” the senior doctor at the CD hospital, one of the exclusive facilities for the management of COVID-19 patients, said.

Sources said that the patient along with his son had surprisingly tested negative at Srinagar Airport on their arrival in the Kashmir Valley few days ago. The elderly person’s son has also been admitted and is presently under treatment at a hospital.

Maharashtra is one among the worst-hit states as regards the resurgence of COVID-19 in India and contributes most of the daily reported cases in the country recently. (GNS)
