He said that his wife’s body will arrive at their home by 11 pm tonight, and the funeral is expected to be held on Tuesday (14th).
“My wife was conscious when she was in the general ward. She was only wearing an oxygen mask and complained of physical pain. She could respond to anything we asked her.”
