LONDON / MANCHESTER: A Pakistani plastic surgeon, who works temporarily at the Manchester Royal Infirmary (MRI), died of the COVID-19 virus after continuing to use a ventilator for more than three weeks.
Dr. Furqan Ali Siddiqui graduated from Dow Medical College in 1991-2, but specializes in plastic surgery and is considered a thorough professional in his field.
The family of the deceased is still in Pakistan, including his six children who will not be able to attend his final ceremony due to travel restrictions. Dr Siddiqui will be buried in England.
Dr Shabi Ahmed, who serves as a Consultant Urologist and President of DOGANE (Dow’s overseas graduate from Northern Europe) spoke exclusively to Geo News said, “Dr Furqan’s classmates are arranging his funeral at the moment but it is heartbreaking that no one from his family will be able to attend his funeral or bury him. ”
Commenting on the death of his colleague, Dr Salman Shahid said, “Another Pakistani asset was lost. He served on the front lines on MRI when he captured COVID-19 and finally lost his life. May Allah bless him with Jannah and give patience to his family and loved ones.”
Dr. Friends Siddiqui remembers how he used to treat patients for free in Karachi and how much he cared about the poor and the weak. The surgeon’s wife is also a doctor.
Previously, Dr. Habib Zaidi, Dr. Shahid Sattar, Dr. Maimoona Rana, Dr. Nasir Khan and other Pakistani doctors also lost their lives due to viral infections in the UK.
More than 26,000 people have died of COVID-19 in the UK, while more than 170,000 have been infected by a viral disease. British Prime Minister Boris Johson stated that the peak of the corona virus had passed but in spite of that, 674 people had died in the previous 24-hour period.
