MUMBAI: COVID-19 claimed its second victim in four days when a 63-year-old man succumbed to the virus at a private hospital, officials said here on Sunday.

He had been admitted to the private hospital on March 19 with chronic diabetes and high blood pressure and developed acute respiratory distress syndrome leading to death, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s public health department said in a release.

Late on Saturday, he developed severe breathing problems and succumbed around 11pm.

The number of infected people in Maharastra has climbed to 74, with six new cases in Mumbai, according to officials.

On March 17, the state’s first victim, a 63-year-old man with history of foreign travel to Dubai had died due to coronavirus.

The rise in the Covid-19 cases comes on a day millions of people kept themselves at the homes after Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed or a Janata Curfew to check the spread of the deadly virus.
