Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah’s brother-in-law Syed Mehdi Ali Shah died from coronavirus at Aga Khan Hospital in Karachi late on Thursday evening.

Mehdi Shah’s health started deteriorating after he returned home from a pilgrimage to Syria a couple of weeks ago. He got himself examined at Aga Khan Hospital two weeks ago and he was admitted to isolation ward of the hospital. He was shifted to the National Institute for Cardiac Diseases on Thursday evening. 

Mehdi Shah, managing director of the Sindh Industrial Trading Estate (SITE), was placed on a ventilator after his condition worsened.

Offering his condolences to the Sindh chief minister, Governor Imran Ismail said in a twitter message that Mehdi had been fighting Covid-19 for three weeks.

Sindh has seen a steady increase in the number of coronavirus cases since February 26 when Pakistan’s first coronavirus case was reported in Karachi. As of April 9, the number of coronavirus infections in the province stood at 1,128, with recovery of 280 patients and death of 20 others. Most parts of the province have been under a tough lockdown for the last few weeks as the provincial government led by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) struggles to contain the virus.
