Former AIIMS HoD Dr JN Pande dies of coronavirus

Dr Pande and his wife had tested positive for covid on Tuesday and were staying in home quarantine. His wife was shifted to AIIMS on Saturday. "Dr Pande joined AIIMS as an MBBS student and retired as the Head of the Department of Medicine,” AIIMS Director Dr Randeep Guleria said.

NEW DELHI, May 23: Dr Jitendra Nath Pande, formerly Professor and Head of the Department of Medicine, AIIMS, New Delhi, died of coronavirus on Saturday. He was 79.

Dr Pande and his wife had tested positive for covid on Tuesday and were staying in home quarantine. His wife was shifted to AIIMS on Saturday.

Dr Pande had co-morbid conditions.

After his retirement from the AIIMS, Dr Pande, an acclaimed pulmonologist, joined the Sitaram Bhartia Institute of Science and Research and worked there as a senior consultant in the Respiratory Medicine department.

“We were following up on him regularly and he said he was improving. Yesterday, after having his dinner, he went off to sleep and then passed away in his sleep possibly because of an acute cardiac event,” Dr Guleria told reporters.

“Knowledge and humility can co-exist and Dr Pande was an epitome of that. He was an excellent human being and it is a great loss to the medical fraternity. AIIMS family will miss him the most because he joined AIIMS as an MBBS student and retired as the head of the Department of Medicine,” Dr Guleria said.

Meanwhile, regetting that doctors have no protection provided against the infection, the Resident Doctors Association alleged that the administration has not been heeding to their request for adequate protection for the medical staff dealing with coronavirus patients. The AIIMS is a designated facility for coronavirus treatment.

Yesterday an employee of the hostel mess had also died of coronavirus infection.
