The man was admitted to the Sharda Hospital, a dedicated Covid-19 facility, in Greater Noida where he died on Monday night, they said.

Meanwhile, six more people tested positive for Covid-19 in Gautam Buddh Nagar, pushing the tally of cases to 230.

Another six people got discharged after treatment for the novel virus and now there are 86 active cases in the district, the officer said.

“Total 57 reports have been received in the last 24 hours, of which six were positive and the rest negative for Covid-19. The number of confirmed cases in Gautam Buddh Nagar now stands at 230,” Dohare said.

“So far, 141 of the 230 patients have been cured and discharged, leaving 86 active cases in the district,” he added.

The recovery rate of patients is 61.30 per cent, according to the official statistics. According to officials, so far 4,251 samples have been collected for Covid-19 test in the district, while 484 people are currently under institutional quarantine.
