This patient was vaccinated and did not have any travel history. After this from 14 January onwards, all deaths have taken place in private hospitals of the district.
11 patients of the 20 that succumbed to COVID facilitated co-morbidities were above 70 years of age, and males accounted for 60% of the total deaths in the third wave.
