Kashmir registers its first COVID-19 death

A 65-year-old man who had a recent travel history outside the region, became the first COVID-19 fatality in (IOK) Indian-Occupied-Kashmir, sparking fear and causing a stricter lockdown.

Rohit Kansal, the spokesperson of the region’s government, said the “first death due to coronavirus is a 65-year-old man from Srinagar”, he said, referring to the Srinagar man who tested positive two days ago.

Kansal said that four of his contacts have also tested positive for the virus.
