KOTTAYAM: A youth who was in quarantine after coming from Dubai collapsed and died. He has been identified as Manjunath (39) of Kanakkary Kallambara Mano Bhavan in the district. His relatives alleged that the youth found in an unconscious condition was shifted to the hospital very late. Even though he was taken to the medical college hospital by evening and shifted to the ICU, his life could not be saved. His swab samples have been taken for testing.

Manjunath who reached the state on June 21 was in home quarantine. When his brother came with the food yesterday morning found that the food served earlier was not eaten. He later found him lying in an unconscious condition. They soon informed the primary health centre in Kanakkary.

The authorities of the health department reached home and directed to take him to the medical college hospital. Though informed in the morning, the ambulance reached only in the evening.

Dr Dhanya Susheelan of the primary health centre said that they had informed the corona cell. He leaves behind his wife Gayathri and children Sivani and Surya Kiran.
