An attendant at the outpatient department (OPD) of a charity-run hospital in Karachi died of the coronavirus on Wednesday, officials said.
Noman Ahmed, 32, worked as an attendant at Al-Khidmat Hospital in Orangi Town that is run by Jamaat-i-Islami’s charity wing.
According to Dr. Merajul Huda Siddiqi, a central leader of JI, Noman after being diagnosed with the virus was admitted to an isolation ward at Dr. Ruth Pfau Civil Hospital, Karachi, where he remained under treatment for 10 days.
He was put on a ventilator but his health subsequently improved and he returned home after being discharged.
However, his condition deteriorated again a few days ago, and he passed away on Wednesday.
