Really sad to hear this news today as he was one of the best raagis

 

Padma Shri awardee Bhai Nirmal Singh dies after testing positive for Covid-19

 

 

Bhai Nirmal Singh Khalsa, 67, a Padma Shri awardee and a former hazoori ragi (Gurbani exponent) at Golden Temple, passed away after a heart attack at 4.30am on Thursday, a day after he was diagnosed with coronavirus disease (Covid-19).

Amritsar civil surgeon Dr Prabhdeep Kaur Johal said he was put on ventilator on Wednesday night after his condition worsened due to his bronchial asthma.

With his death, the toll due to Covid-19 in Punjab has risen to six.

Bhai Nirmal Singh was referred to Guru Nanak Dev Hospital (GNDH) from the local Shri Guru Ram Das Hospital on March 30 after he complained of breathlessness.

“He visited England in November. A health department team visited his house on March 3 after we got the information that two guests – his uncle and aunt – from the US visited him. They were found asymptomatic. When the home quarantine period of the guests was over on March 17, they were found asymptomatic. Bhai Nirmal Singh then went to Chandigarh for a kirtan samagam on March 19 where over 100 people gathered,” Dr Johal said.

“He tested positive for coronavirus on Wednesday. He may have caught the infection during his trip to Chandigarh. He died of sudden cardiac arrest on Thursday,” she said.

Sad part is not that he died. Death ot eternal. 

The sad parts are

1. They didn't let his funeral happen in Amritsar. Then when his family took him to verka ( his pind) they didn't let it happen there too... Then it was some third place out of the pind that they carried on his funeral. 

2. He wasn't given proper treatment. U can feel the pain in his voice. 

3. One of his jodidaar is still in hospital and yesterday he also confirmed that Punjab Govt. is Not providing any proper medical treatment to any patient.

Its really sad that the stress of being there killed bhai sahib quicker than the virus itself which is shocking as he went to attend late bhai balbir singh bhog when he likely caught the virus.

Didn’t have the virus

That doesn't seem to be true, though I too saw that on FB  ...  his daughter and one of his companions is still in hospital with positive report.
