According to the association "It is a sad day for the whole association as we have lost one of our own in the fight against COVID-19. He is a casualty of this war. We honor him as he lost his young life while fulfilling his duties as a doctor, a young cardiologist and a dedicated member of PHA."

PHA asked for prayers for the young "hero" doctor, other medical frontliners battling the germ in hospitals, and patients with the virus worldwide and the association said "Please pray for the eternal repose of his soul. Please pray for all our members and all our other doctors and healthcare workers in the frontlines and all the people who are afflicted by the disease.”
