Dr Pasha had been admitted at the private hospital since June 14 after he tested positive for the coronavirus.
According to Pro Vice-Chancellor Dr Masood Ijaz, a team of specialist doctors were treating Dr Pasha. He started experiencing difficulty in breathing three days ago and had been on a ventilator ever since.
However, the doctor’s condition worsened after his lungs started bleeding and he succumbed to his ailing condition this morning.
Dr Pasha was the first Vice-Chancellor of the Nishtar Medical University and a specialist surgeon.
Funeral prayers of the deceased will be offered today after Asar prayers at Nishtar Ground.
