Pulapol admitted him to hospital on Feb 28 when his symptoms persisted.

The symptoms are usually mild respiratory infection, diarrhoea and conjunctivitis and people are infected through direct contact with those infected or through droplets from coughs or sneeze, he said.

“The trainee was admitted to the intensive care unit on March 5 and passed away at 8.30pm on Tuesday due to community-acquired pneumonia with multiple organ failure,” he said in a press statement yesterday.
