Two brothers with coronavirus die within hours of each other | ITV News

The family of two “well-loved” brothers with coronavirus who died on the same day in opposite beds on an intensive care unit have told ITV News of their grief.

Ghulam Abbas, 59, and 54-year-old Raza Ghulam were on ventilators on Newport’s Royal Gwent hospital’s ICU when they died within hours of each other on April 21.

Their deaths came just three weeks after their father had died from an unrelated health condition – the same day younger brother Raza was put into a coma.
