Srinagar: The deadly Coronavirus infection has claimed the life of an 18 year old youth in Kashmir Valley. This is the second youngest person who has become the prey of this deadly infection. Earlier a 34 year old youth from Hawal Srinagar died of Covid-19 infection and that death had been directly attributed to Coronavirus.
