In a first of it's kind case, a Noida doctor working in Super Specialty Pediatric Hospital and Post Graduate Teaching Institute has tested Covid positive again after recovering from corona 45 days earlier.
According to a report, the doctor first tested positive for the virus on May 15, 2020. After fifteen days, he was discharged on May 30 and then he was home quarantined for ten to fifteen days.
His friend, who is also a doctor in the hospital, has been quoted as saying that he experienced dizziness some two weeks ago following which he was advised a test again. He said that he again tested Covid positive in rapid test. For confirmation, he was tested through RT-PCR test, which too confirmed his Covid positive status.
