    Such a thing can not be claimed categorically. However the disease has similarities to those mentioned as martyrdom in ahadith so it can be hoped that it will also count as martyrdom.

There is no specific report for that but it is hoped that it like the other diseases like plague which has the status if martyrdom.


Sahih Bukhari, Hadith 2830
"It is martyrdom for every Muslim to die for a epidemic"

So, I can say, Yes. You can hope so. All you need to make your Iman stronger.
