The concerned health officers informed the meeting that the majority of the patients who died due to Covid-19 suffered from one or more Comorbidities like CAP, CAD, CKD, ICH, HTN and COPD etc, adding that these patients subsequently developed bilateral pneumonia and succumbed to the disease.
The meeting was also informed that delayed reporting of Covid positive cases to the health authorities proved fatal as complications had already developed.
Furthermore, one of the young patients who was in mid thirties was suffering from Acute Myeloid Leukaemia (AML) and was taking immunosuppressant drugs and therefore he could not withstand the viral load due to compromised immunity.
Among others the meeting was attended by CMO Anantnag, Medical superintendent, GMC, Anantnag, Dy.CMO and Epidemiologist, IDFC NHM.
