Dr. Hu Weifeng, one of the Chinese doctors in Wuhan whose skin turned dark after Coronavirus damaged his liver has died after a five-month fight.

The doctor and his colleague Dr. Yi Fan contracted Covid-19 in January while they were treating patients with the killer bug at Wuhan Central Hospital.

After battling with the disease for five months, Dr. Hu Weifeng died in hospital on Tuesday, June 2.

The 42-year-old and colleague Dr. Yi Fan made headline news after their skin changed colour after they were diagnosed with Coronavirus. Their abnormal skin colour was caused by hormonal imbalances after their livers were damaged by the virus, their doctor told Chinese state media back in April.
