An 80-year-old freedom fighter has died right after learning that he had tested positive for Covid-19.

On Tuesday, Yusuf’s wife and brother-in-law took him to Tungipara Upazila Health Complex for Covid-19 test. The healthcare workers collected his sample and ran an antigen test, the result of which came positive in just 10 minutes.

A team from the Islamic Foundation performed his namaz-e-janaza and buried him following the Covid-19 safety rules.
