British-Bangladeshi dies from coronavirus in UK

A British national of Bangladeshi origin succumbed to coronavirus infection yesterday at a hospital in UK's Manchester, the third death from the disease in the country.

The deceased, aged 60, returned to UK from Italy on February 29 after a visit. He had also been suffering from cholesterol, arthritis, cardiac complication, asthma and breathing complication, BBC Bangla reported quoting his son.

He went for a regular check-up at a local health centre on March 3, when he was wearing a mask. Being asked why he was wearing the mask, he replied that he had recently been to Italy, and immediately he was placed in isolation and later a medical team from North Manchester General Hospital took him to the hospital and conducted tests on him, in which he was confirmed to be infected with the virus and placed on quarantine, his son said.

"Initially, his condition was stable at the hospital. We were also asked to stay home and could not communicate with him. We got information over phone from the hospital's ward where he was admitted to," his son added.

"Yesterday a phone came from the hospital informing us that my father passed away. Can't express how it feels to know that I won't be able to see him again," his son told BBC Bangla.
