- He sometimes assisted those in need without charge.
Another Cape Town doctor has died of Covid-19.
Dr Ebrahim Kahn, 70, had rooms in Salt River and served as a community doctor for 35 years, family spokesperson Masturah Adams said.
He died on Monday.
His death followed that of Dr Fuad Jakoet, who died of Covid-19 on Youth Day. Jakoet also had rooms in Salt River.
Kahn's condition rapidly deteriorated about a week after he was admitted to ICU.
Adams, who is part of the Covid-19 Bo-Kaap Community Response Team, previously shared that Kahn had been on a ventilator and other support devices due to the disease and "associated comorbidities".
"He was a simple, down-to-earth man with a kind soul that had much love for the elderly and the vulnerable," she told News24.
Kahn often helped people without charge, she added.
"He hugely impacted people's lives in a positive way. He will be sorely missed by the community at large."
Kahn and his wife, Zainab Simons-Kahn, had managed to visit Mecca on a religious pilgrimage in January this year.
He is survived by a son and two daughters from a previous marriage.
He was buried on Monday afternoon.
