Authorities in Punjab said that the death of a man who died at a Lahore hospital was not caused by the novel coronavirus.

Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar in a tweet said, “We have received test reports of Imran Ali, who lost his life in Mayo Hospital, and his cause of death was not #COVID19. So far Punjab has 8 confirmed cases and are being provided best available treatment. I urge everyone that these are testing times & we should act responsibly!

Imran, who had returned from Iran via Qatar and was admitted to Meo Hospital on Monday, was suspected of infected with the virus.

He died at the hospital but his test reports, which came out on Tuesday, showed he had not contracted the virus.

The health authorities said that the man died due to liver complications.
