Thane: Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) corporator Mukund Keni (58) died of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) late at night on Tuesday.
Keni, who was the corporator of Kalwa under the Thane Municipal Corporation (TMC), tested Covid-19 positive 14 days ago and was put on a ventillator support at a private hospital in Mumbai. His wife, Pramila Keni, is the opposition leader in TMC.
“Keni had gone to a hospital to assist a Covid-19 positive patient and two days later he developed symptoms such as fever. Initially, he was admitted to a private hospital in Thane, but later was shifted to Mumbai after he tested Covid-19 positive. He was suffering from comorbid conditions such as diabetes and blood sugar and was put on a ventillator support the day he was admitted to the private hospital in Mumbai,” said an NCP worker.
A Shiv Sena corporator (55) from Mira-Bhayandar Municipal Corporation in Maharashtra’s Thane district died of Covid-19 on Tuesday, hours before Keni passed away because of the contagion.
