KUCHING, June 14: A man with no comorbidity is among the five Covid-19 deaths reported in Sarawak today.

According to the Sarawak Disaster Management Committee (SDMC) in its daily statement, the 50-year-old man from Sibu was found positive for the virus on May 15.

“He was then admitted to the Sibu Hospital for further treatment but his health deteriorated before passing away,” the Committee said.

While fatality involving those with no illness is rare, this does not deny the fact that the Covid-19 disease could be the sole factor in being the cause of death.

SDMC added that the other four deaths involved three men and one woman, aged between 55 and 85, with medical records of comorbidities.

The five fatalities today bring the total Covid-19 deaths in the State to 365. — DayakDaily
