Moga, April 27

A 20-year-old youth, who was suspected to have been infected by coronavirus, died while undergoing treatment in the district hospital on Sunday evening.

Lakhwinder Singh, a resident of Mudki in Faridkot, was admitted to the district hospital on Sunday morning.

Confirming the death, Dr Naresh Amla, nodal officer for Covid-19, said the deceased was also a drug addict. He was addicted to “chitta”, a synthetic drug. Since he couldn’t procure drugs from anywhere, his condition aggravated. “As a precautionary measure, we have taken his swab and blood samples for the Covid test,” said the nodal officer.

As per information, Lakhwinder was a labourer. Last week, he complained of fever and throat infection, following which his landlord asked him to stay home. His sister took him the district hospital, where he was referred to Guru Gobind Singh Medical College and Hospital in Faridkot, but before he could leave for Faridkot, he died on the hospital premises. — TNS
