Meghalaya’s first and only Covid-19 positive patient passed away at the multi-speciality North Eastern Indira Gandhi Regional Institute Of Health & Medical Sciences (NEIGRIHMS) in state capital Shillong in the early hours Wednesday (15 April).
The 69-year renowned physician and philanthropist was tested positive Monday evening and was admitted to NEIGRIHMS immediately. The private hospital he was attached with was sealed and turned into a quarantine centre with all the patients admitted there and hospital staff being kept in isolation there.
The doctor was a director of the reputable private hospital in Shillong where former President Dr A P J Abdul Kalam had passed away in July 2015.
