BUTWAL : Three people have succumbed to COVID-19 in Butwal today. Two of them died at a hospital in Butwal and one on the way to the hospital in Dang, said Dr Bishnu Gautam, Information Officer at the Lumbini Provincial Hospital.
Among the deceased, an 84-year-old man of Butwal-11, had required intensive care unit service after his health worsened. However, the hospital in Butwal lacked an ICU at that time. As a result, the man died on the way to the hospital in Dang, said Gautam.
The man had been suffering from a heart problem for a while. The other two who died were a 61-year-old woman from Butwal-11 and a 70-year-old man of Butwal-1.
