Bihar minister succumbs, 20th lawmaker in India to have died with or of Covid | India News – Times of India


Another Bihar minister died of Covid-19 on Friday, taking the number of serving legislators in the country who have lost their lives to the disease — or complications arising out of it — to 20.
Kapil Dev Kamat, 70, is the second minister and the third legislator from poll-bound Bihar to die of the virus or due to post-Covid complications. Earlier, Cabinet minister Vinod Kumar Singh had died on October 12 due to post-Covid complications.
With Kamat’s death, seven ministers — including Union minister Suresh Angadi and two ministers each in Bihar and UP and one each in Jharkhand and Nagaland — have succumbed to the virus or from its side effects. Of the 20 legislators who died, six died from post- Covid complications and the rest died of the virus.
Kamat was admitted to AIIMS Patna on October 1 and was put on ventilator after his condition deteriorated. Sources said Kamat was admitted for dialysis at Indira Gandhi Institute of Medical Sciences, where he tested positive for the virus. He was then shifted to AIIMS.
