His condition presumably took a turn for the worse  on 26 Mar and staff transferred him to the intensive care unit (ICU).

He subsequently developed serious complications and died from the infection after spending 7 days in the ICU.

The NCID is in touch with the deceased’s family and is rendering assistance to them.
