Doctor dies of heart attack in front of his home


A DOCTOR from Sungai Petani collapsed in front of his house upon returning from work, Makkal Osai reported.

Dr M. Sasi Kumar, 37, was a pulmonologist in the respiratory medicine department (CHEST) at Hospital Sultanah Bahiyah in Alor Setar.

His family rushed him to the hospital but he died on the way, doctors said. A post-mortem found that he died from a heart attack.

It was reported that he did not have Covid-19.

A family member said he was under stress due to the increased work load related to Covid-19.

Health director-general Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah and CHEST paid tribute to him on social media.

> The daily also reported that Selangor state exco member V. Ganapathi Rao has urged all state governments and the Federal Government to give tertiary education allowances to Indian students from poor families.

The Kota Kemuning assemblyman said this when handing out financial aid to students from B40 (lower income group) families at his office in Shah Alam. The aid was issued in the name of the relevant institutions to avoid any misuse, he said.
