Kiran informed her followers of her mother’s death on March 30. A day later, she posted a note on Facebook asking around for a hospital where she and her brother would be treated properly.
“Someone please tell me which hospital will be better for coronavirus,” Kiran wrote in one of her last Facebook posts. She was 34 years old.
Journalist Hamid Mir remarked that Kiran’s death has exposed the government’s incompetence.
