Second British Pakistani doctor loses life to coronavirus

By Murtaza Ali Shah ***Hamza Azhar Salam

LONDON: Another British Pakistani doctor has lost life to the deadly coronavirus after remaining in the hospital for about two weeks.

Dr Syed Zeeshan Haider passed away after fighting the deadly coronavirus at the Queen’s Hospital.

Dr Haider, who was in his 80s and lived in Dagenham, Essex is the second Pakistani origin doctor to lay down his life against the deadly COVID-19. Previously, Dr Habib Zaidi, an elderly doctor from Southend was the first doctor in all of the UK to succumb to the viral disease.

After developing symptoms of the virus, Dr Haider was shifted to the hospital where he stayed for one week but he was unable to recover from the damage caused by the coronavirus.

Dr Haider’s son, Dr Kumail spoke to Geo and The News and confirmed the passing of his father. Dr Syed Zeeshan Haider developed COVID-19 symptoms last week and began self-isolation as per government guidelines. Unfortunately, his condition worsened, and he was taken to Queen’s hospital Romford where he passed away this morning.
