Covid-19 cases go north in north Bengal
North Bengal saw a spike in novel coronavirus cases on Wednesday with 38 new patients from five districts.

In Cooch Behar, all new 16 patients were migrant workers who came back from Maharashtra, Delhi and Uttar Pradesh to their homes in Dinhata, Tufanganj and Cooch Behar Sadar subdivisions, said a district official. This apart, 10 new cases were reported from Malda, three persons tested positive in Alipurduar, two in North Dinajpur and seven in South Dinajpur.

With these 16 new cases, there have been 132 infections in Cooch Behar alone — mostly from Dinhata. Around 30 patients were discharged after recovery.

Darjeeling MP Raju Bista visited the North Bengal Medical College and Hospital on Wednesday for a medical check-up. The MP, who came here from Delhi on May 28 and has been in self-quarantine, spoke to the hospital superintendent and health officials on the Covid-19 situation. “The state should inspect all quarantine centres and check if social distancing is maintained there. If we do not take care of quarantine centres properly, there’s no point of keeping people there,” said the BJP MP.
