Dr. Lakhan Das discharged from hospital; “He has recovered and all his reports are normal,” medical bulletin
One of the most renowned doctors in Southern Assam and Northeastern India, Dr. Kumar Kanti Das, popularly known as Lakhan Das has been discharged from the hospital. He had tested positive for COVID19 on September 4 and then got himself admitted to Green Heals Hospital in Silchar. On September 10, he had tested negative for COVID19 but was kept under observation. Today, at around 3:00 pm, he was discharged from the hospital.
“He was diagnosed as a patient suffering from mild COVID. His treatment was done following the Standard Operating Procedure earmarked for COVID related complications. We performed other relevant tests and after duly analysing the reports, the doctors ascertained that he is fit to be discharged. Medication has been prescribed for the next seven days and certain tests have also been recommended,” shared the medical bulletin.

We wish him the best,” Green Heals stated in its medical bulletin.
