A Covid-19 patient died in a state-run hospital in Kolkata, the third such virus-related death in West Bengal this year, a senior official of the health department said on Tuesday. 

 The deceased, identified as Ashish Hazra, was first admitted to the National Medical College and Hospital with breathing trouble, the official said. 

 "He was diagnosed with meningitis and then tested positive for Covid-19 following which he was shifted to Beliaghata ID Hospital. His condition soon started to deteriorate and he passed away on Sunday night," she told PTI.
