In a major development, with two more COVID-19 patients being discharged after recovery, the Silchar Medical College and Hospital (SMCH) has now no COVID-19 patient under treatment. The hospital witnessed the first case of coronavirus on March 31 last year and since then there had been a constant surge in the number of cases in the past year.
Dr. Babul Bezbaruah, Principal of SMCH while talking to The Assam Tribune on Saturday said "we have discharged two patients today and with this, we have no more COVID-19 patients under treatment at the hospital now. We had the first case of the virus on March 31 and over the past 10 months, there was a heavy rush of patients affected by the disease. However, we have kept the 13-bedded ICU and 16 beds for any further inflow of COVID-19 cases at the hospital."
