Bengal doctor tests positive for COVID-19 for second time

A doctor from Hooghly district in West Bengal tests COVID-19 positive for the second time within three months, said reports.

The infected doctor claims that he has taken sufficient caution to avoid the infection. However, the people who came to him for treatment were not following the COVID-19 precautionary measures.

The state health department thinks that the infection is spreading in the district due to the negligence of people. However, local doctors and health workers are concerned after hearing the news of the doctor who tested COVID-19 positive for the second time.

According to the health department, Diptajit Das, a doctor at the Kanaipur health center in the Srirampur-Uttarpara block of Hooghly, tested COVID-19 positive in late August. At that time, the infection had spread to many people in his house. After recovering in September, Diptajit joined the work.

According to the doctor’s family, Diptajit had been suffering from fever, cough and headache for several days. He did his COVID-19 test and the report came positive on Sunday (December 6).
