Mamun Hossain, a staff member of the Dhaka Tribune’s IT department, has died after contracting Covid-19.

The 26-year-old breathed his last within a few hours of being admitted to a Dhaka hospital with low oxygen levels around 4am on Sunday.

A systems support assistant, Mamun tested positive for the coronavirus on Thursday and had been undergoing treatment at home upon doctor's advice. His condition suddenly deteriorated late on Saturday.

The Patuakhali native was admitted to the capital’s Better Life Hospital Ltd around 1am on Sunday. 

He left behind his infant child, wife, mother and a host of well-wishers to mourn his death. Mamun had been working with Dhaka Tribune for the past four and a half years.    

He was buried at his hometown in Patuakhali at around 6:30pm, his family said. 

The Dhaka Tribune family mourns his untimely death and conveys sincere condolences to his family members.

“At this moment our thoughts and prayers are with Mamun's family. That such tragedy should strike someone at such a tender age is truly something that the mind cannot fathom, and while we will do everything we can to help them through this crisis, we know that nothing we can do can mend their pain,” Editor Zafar Sobhan said in a condolence message.

Dhaka Tribune is one of the first newspapers in the country to opt for work from home ever since the pandemic broke out in March last year.
