A Chinese man living in Singapore with Covid-19 recovered and was discharged from the hospital but died two weeks later.
Channel News Asia reported that the patient is Chinese, 41 years old, living in Singapore. The Singapore Ministry of Health confirmed this was the 11,714 case of Covid-19,714 in the country. The patient was positive for SARS-CoV-2 virus on April 22, recovered and was discharged on May 17.
However, this man suddenly died on 4/6. Investigators confirmed the cause of death was acute severe pulmonary artery obstruction after contracting Covid-19.
This is a complication of Covid-19 so Singapore still counts this as a disease-related death, bringing the total number of deaths from Covid-19 to 25 cases. This is the youngest patient in Singapore to die from a complication of Covid-19.
Earlier, on May 31, a 51-year-old Chinese man in Singapore also died from a complication due to Covid-19. This person was diagnosed with lymphoma complicated by multiple organ failure and required intensive treatment.
He was confirmed to have Covid-19 on May 1. Despite being treated for lymphoma, the patient’s condition worsened and the patient died after nearly a month of treatment.
Currently, Singapore has more than 37,500 people infected with SARS-CoV-2 virus, a total of 24,559 people have fully recovered and discharged.
Currently, 308 confirmed cases remain in the hospital. Of these, most are in stable or improved condition, with only 4 patients in critical condition requiring intensive care.
