With immense grief, the Ministry of Health would like to inform the nation that a 34 year old man with pre-existing medical conditions (chronic liver disease and renal failure) who was detected with COVID-19 passed away today. He was managed at the COVID-19 ward at the JDWNRH campus.

On 21st December, he was brought to JDWNRH for the treatment of severe hepatitis during which he was detected with COVID-19. Laboratory examination showed that his liver function test was grossly deranged and he was diagnosed with severe acute hepatitis. He received hemodialysis for acute kidney failure. According to the treating physician, the prognosis of such cases with hepato-renal failure is grave. Our thoughts are with his family, as we share this news.
