Renowned nephrologist in Silchar Dr. Munim Rashul Mazumder tests positive for COVID19
Senior Nephrologist and the man behind the dialysis centre in Mediland Hospital Silchar, Dr. Munim Rashul Mazumder has tested positive for COVID19. He has been transferred to the Silchar Medical College and Hospital.
The official spokesperson of Silchar Medical College and Hospital informed that Dr. Mazumde4r is under treatment at SMCH. As per available information, he has mild symptoms of Influenza-Like Illness and was suffering from slight fever for the last couple of days.
It is worth mentioning here that on July 17, Mala Dutta Mazumdar was referred to SMCH from Mediland Hospital in critical condition. At SMCH, she tested COVID positive before passing away. Later the Death Audit Board of Assam declared that though she was infected by the coronavirus, the cause of death was not COVID.
But the district administration had placed the hospital under quarantine and the patients, doctors and paramedical staff were tested for COVID19. As per hospital sources, all of them had tested negative back then.
Mediland has a dialysis centre which remains busy throughout the year. With Dr. MR Mazumder out of action for at least 21 days, how the hospital keeps the centre operational remains to be seen.
