#Coronavirus: Index Case in UK Cluster Dies

March 23, 2013
Birmingham grandad Abid Hussain has become the UK’s second victim to the new Sars-like bug Coronavirus.
The tragedy comes as Mr Hussain’s wife and daughter were in Pakistan after burying his son Khalid, 38, who had also fallen victim to the killer disease.

The dad-of-two, in his 60s, of Winson Green, was being treated at Wythenshawe Hospital, in Manchester, and seemed to be improving.

But he took a turn for the worse and lost his battle on Tuesday.

“It was a shock to discover he was suffering from this terrible disease when he came back from Mecca. His daughter had gone out there with him, but was given the all clear.”
