On Saturday morning he received an SMS that the UP student had tested COVID-19 positive. Scared, he communicated with the heath department of Baksa district for his health examination. Receiving the information, a team from Naokata PHC rushed to his house and after primary investigation and taking travelling history, the student was sent to GMCH for proper and adequate investigation.
The student has been suffering from fever, cold and cough since Friday. When the student reached GMCH, a team of expert doctors and staff started examination and investigation. After blood test, the student tested COVID-19 negative and was sent home.
