A 29-year-old Chinese doctor has died of a stroke after fighting the coronavirus for 35 days non-stop. Dr. Dong Tian, an anaesthetist, was declared dead at a hospital in Hubei on Saturday morning, a week before his 30th birthday.

The medic worked non-stop on the front line for over a month before collapsing and being rushed to the hospital on March 3.
He was treated at the Intensive Care Unit for 19 days before passing away, according to reports. He left behind his wife and sick father.
On February 29, the doctor was given a break after working for 35 days in a row. He was put under isolation due to quarantine requirements.

The anaesthetist was rushed to the hospital when he had a sudden headache and started losing the ability to speak during his quarantine.
