On Monday morning, a 25-year-old doctor from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) died of coronavirus disease.
Dr. Vikas Solanki, who has been on a ventilator for over a month, was from the 2012 batch of MBBS at AIIMS, reported Hindustan Times.
“He had completed his internship and gone to his hometown in Haryana where he got the infection. He was brought back to AIIMS for treatment and despite the best efforts of the doctors here, he passed away after being on a ventilator for 1.5 months,” Dr Amrindeer Singh Malhi, resident doctor at AIIMS, told the newspaper.
“He was a brilliant student and a topper of his batch,” he said.
Another resident doctor Abhinav Singh added that Dr. Solanki had sponsored the education of students from class 6 through 10 in a school in Leh, Ladakh for two years. The funeral will happen at his native village in Haryana, according to the doctors.
