A 15-year-old child has died in Russian-occupied Abkhazia after being admitted to the hospital on April 7 in critical condition.

Abkhaz news agency Apsnypress reports that the child had been tested for coronavirus and medics are waiting for the test result.

The patient died within one hour after being transferred to the hospital on April 7.

The minor had disabilities and many chronic diseases. Earlier on April 3 the child was transferred to a children's hospital with a preliminary diagnosis of gastrointestinal infection without any symptoms of coronavirus, says the de facto government of Abkhazia.

The first case of coronavirus was confirmed in the Russian-occupied region on April 7.

The de facto authorities of the region say that the infected individual is a 75-year-old man from Abkhaz town of Gagra who travelled to Russia.

The de facto government says that 86 individuals have been tested for the virus so far in the region, while they have 400 tests in all.

Only people who show several symptoms of the virus are being tested.
