LONDON: Another ex-British Gurkha soldier has succumbed to COVID-19 in London. The latest victim is around 55 years old Laxman Shrestha who had been living in Plumstead of London.

Shrestha died at a local Guys Hospital on Wednesday in the course of treatment, said Bhoj Baral, who is also a former British Gurkha soldier.

Shrestha originally hailed from Syangja and had been staying in London.

He was hospitalized after suffering from cough and fever for the last two weeks. He was kept on ventilator support lately but his health showed no signs of improvement.

The number of Nepalis dying due to coronavirus in Britain has now reached 10, including seven ex-British Gurkha servicemen.
