Compiled by XIAO TONG, C. ARUNO and R. ARAVINTHAN

A LABOURER in Andra Pradesh, India, who was isolated by his village after testing positive for Covid-19, died alone in a hut without receiving any help.

Makkal Osai reported that the man, identified as Asairi Naidu, wanted to return to his home after being infected with the virus.

But he was barred by villagers and even his own relatives. So his family built a small hut for him on the outskirts of the village.

The man reportedly did not get any medical assistance either.

When his condition worsened and he collapsed, his own daughter was prevented from giving water to him.

Eventually, she was allowed to do so but her father died a few minutes later.

> Ipoh OCPD Asst Comm A. Asmadi Abdul Aziz and several police officers paid their respects at the funeral of a man who was killed trying to help accident victims, Makkal Osai reported.

K. Nagendran, 22, was struck by another car when he went to the aid of a 52-year-old woman whose car had overturned on the North-South Expressway near Ipoh.

He died at the scene. The woman he helped, unfortunately, died later in hospital.

Five vehicles were involved in the accident.
