Pakistan : Journalist dies of dengue fever

An article from The Nation :

" LAHORE : Senior journalist Saud Malik died here on Monday. He was suffering from dengue fever. His funeral would be taken out from his old Muslim Town residence, 10-Salik Road on Tuesday (today). During his 25 years journalist career, late Saud remained associated with Urdu dailies and news agencies. Office-bearers of various bodies of journalists including Punjab Union of Journalists and Lahore Press Club have condoled his death expressing concern over inadequate facilities for treatment of dengue patients at state-run hospitals.

As per details obtained from his family members, Saud Malik was admitted to Services Hospital Lahore some five days back with symptoms of dengue fever. The doctors asked his relatives to take the patient to some private clinic, saying the hospital had run short of necessary platelets kits. His relatives then shifted him to Jinnah Hospital, but the doctors discharged him after three days. His condition deteriorated again.

Late Saud was then admitted to Wapda Hospital, where he breathed his last on Monday evening."
