Five months have passed, but there is no sign of improvement in the COVID-19 situation. The situation seems to be getting worse day by day. The recovery rate has increased but the number of victims has also increased with time.

On August 16, a man named Subir Dutt was admitted to Amri Hospital in Dhakuria due to COVID-19. He suffered from breathing problems. To avoid risks, doctors put him on ventilator support four days after admission. But that did not solve the problem. While on a ventilator, Subir had a heart attack. Fortunately, there was no mishap. The patient gradually recovered from the critical condition due to the hard work of doctors.
