Thailand Reported First DEATH Of Medic After Catching Coronavirus From A Dead Patient

A medical examiner in Thailand has died after contracting coronavirus from a dead patient. This is the first case of a dead patient passing on coronavirus anywhere in the world.

The medical worker got coronavirus in Bangkok. Health officials warned the forensic workers to be cautious while handling the dead bodies of COVID-19 patients.

Scientists believed that there are less chances that the forensic worker got the virus from infected dead body. Scientists said that there is no exact data on the infected number of COVID-19 corpses.

Forensics workers must have to wear protective gears, including masks, gloves, goggles, and caps. They said: “The disinfection procedure used in operation rooms might be applied in pathology/forensic units too.” 

Researchers say that according to their knowledge this is the first such case anywhere around the world. It is not clear yet how the virus spreads exactly so the medical professionals have to be careful according to the World Health Organization.

WHO said that the patient died of influenza have infectious lungs if handled improperly. However, WHO said that the viruses don’t survive long in the human body after death.

The Centers for disease control and prevention in the US also warned medics to wear protective equipment when handling patients of coronavirus. Thailand has reported 2,613 coronavirus cases and there have been 41 deaths so far.
