    One more death in D.K. There are plenty of cases in Kerala and even in Mysore, patients above 58 with some medical problems are recovered and sent home. Why its not becoming possible in D.K. ? Concerned authority and ministers should look into this fact and if need be the best doctors and nurses should be appointed immediately to save the people of D.K.

    We do not know if she had any existing medical conditions and what they were. An 84 old person with no previous health conditions may survive whereas even a 24 year old with an already existing severe medical condition may die. Age is just a number.

    Most of the recent cases are people who were taking treatment in first neuro.. these patients already suffer from serious health problems related to the nervous system..and more over they are aged.
    This might make it difficult for them to respond to treatments...
    Probably the cause of recent deaths..

    The risk of dying due to the virus is more for people with additional health conditions like diabetes, cancer etc. So a 40 year old person with cancer has a less chance of surviving than a 70 year old healthy person with no health conditions.

    It depends on virus strains and load of viral infection.

    Still people are roaming freely without mask. No social distancing. Why administration is not taking it likely. And our leader is busy on social media.

    May her soul rest in place! and wish a speedy recovery for all the remaining patients.
    With foreign returnees back, we can only hope for the best for their health, expect discipline in terms of quarantine rules and expect a corona free DK by end of May / June 2020
