Kolkata: Bad news again. Now, renowned poet Joy Goswami has been infected by Covid-19. According to family sources, Joy Goswami’s coronavirus report came positive at 10 pm on Sunday.
As his condition deteriorated, it was decided to rush him to hospital late in the evening. He was admitted to city-based Beleghata ID Hospital. He was transferred from the non-covid ward to the covid ward at night.
Family sources said Goswami was apparently healthy. This morning onwards, the symptoms of Covid-19 infection started surfacing.
Gradually the fever increased besides vomiting several times. The family contacted the doctor without delay.
Few days back Joy and his wife Kaberi both took the first doses of corona vaccine.
Now the main challenge for the doctors is to help the poet recover quickly.
