The upazila health and family planning official, Dr Bulbul Ahmed, confirmed the matter to Dhaka Tribune on Monday.
The elderly man, a resident of Jagannathpur village in Bhairab, was suffering from fever, cold and coughing, he said.
He fell ill on March 21 and was taken to Abedin Hospital from where he was then referred to Sayed Yousuf Memorial Hospital, the official said.
