Kerala records second COVID-19 death in Thiruvananthapuram
Thiruvananthapuram: The second death in Kerala due to coronavirus infection has been recorded here. A 68-year-old former police official and a Pothencode native Abdul Azeez passed away at the medical college.
He had been under treatment here since March 23. He was suffering from lung and kidney diseases. He was on ventilator for the past five days and breathed his last early Tuesday morning.
His first test result for coronavirus had turned negative, but the second test result confirmed he was suffering from COVID-19.
What has baffled the authorities is they have not been able to identify from where he got the infection, as he neither had a foreign travel history or had any contact with any positive patient. It is assumed that he was a secondary contact of a COVID-19 patient.
Also his route map couldn't be completed.
