Trinamool Congress (TMC) MLA Tamonash Ghosh who was diagnosed with the Wuhan Coronavirus in May passed away on Wednesday. He was 60-years-old.
Ghosh was a three-time MLA from the Falta constituency in South 24 Parganas of West Bengal and had been the party treasurer since 1998. He was admitted to the Apollo Hospital after testing positive for the deadly disease. Besides Coronavirus, he was suffering from heart and kidney complications.
As per a report in Anandabazar Patrika, he was initially negligent about the disease. However, the condition of the late TMC politician became critical by the time he was hospitalised. His condition had worsened in the past 3 days, leading to multi-organ failure. Hospital sources had revealed that Tamonash Ghosh was also diabetic. The doctors had to remove the phlegm that had congested his chest but the presence of pre-existing diseases turned fatal. His family members were also diagnosed with Coronavirus but had recovered due to timely treatment.
