All possible infection prevention and control measures were observed in the course of his hospital admission. It is unfortunate that our patient succumbed to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome last March 21, 2020.
Our deepest sympathy goes to the family and loved ones of outpatient.
The management salutes all our health care personnel who selflessly attended to our patient despite the perceived and true risks associated with this novel virus COVID-19.
Our gratitude to the Attending Physicians, ICC nurse of IDH, Medical Residents, Nurses, Nursing Aids, X-ray technicians, laboratory personnel, transport technicians, security personnel, janitorial services personnel and all others involved in patient care, for showing utmost professionalism, compassion and strength of character despite the odds like limited PPE, uncertain diagnosis at that time.
