He was admitted to the Indira Gandhi Government Medical College and Research Institute on June 24 and treated. The PRO office was closed down and his family members and staff of the department underwent COVID tests and all were found to be negative.

However, Ravi who was a diabetic with hypertension developed breathing distress and was put on oxygen support. As his condition deteriorated, he was shifted on June 30 to JIPMER where he developed pneumonia and died.
