A Sydney businessman has died in India after contracting COVID-19, according to his employer.

Key points:

  • Govind Kant travelled to India in April for family reasons
  • He contracted COVID-19 and died in a Delhi hospital this week
  • A ban on people travelling from India to Australia ended last weekend

Govind Kant, 47, travelled to India in April for personal reasons, and died in a hospital in Delhi in recent days.

His employer, Trina Solar, confirmed the death in a statement.

“We have lost a dear friend and valued colleague. Trina Solar Australia assistant director, Govind Kant, has passed away after contracting the coronavirus in India,” the company posted on LinkedIn.

“Govind, who was based in Sydney for Trina Solar, had returned to India for personal reasons. Unfortunately, Govind contracted the virus in India and has passed away. He was 47 years of age.”

Earlier this month it emerged a 59-year-old Australian permanent resident died after contracting COVID-19 in India.

News of that death came during an Australian-imposed ban on people travelling from India to Australia. 

That ban was lifted on Saturday, when the first India repatriation flight in weeks touched down in Darwin.
