Two of them died at the Clifton campus, while the other two passed away at the North Nazimabad campus.

The deceased were identified as 82-year-old Sarfraz Hussain from Defence, 35-year-old Afshan Asif from Gulbahar, 57-year-old Gulnar Begum from Nazimabad and 50-year-old Saeeda from North Karachi, a spokesperson of the hospital confirmed to SAMAA Digital.
