Six family members of the eminent physician who passed away in the wee hours of Wednesday (April 15) in Meghalaya’s capital Shillong have also tested positive for the dreaded Covid-19 virus.
The wife, two sons, one daughter-in-law and two grandchildren of the physician who was the director of the city’s premier private hospital have tested positive.
The well-known physician is suspected to have contracted the virus from his son-in-law, a pilot with Air India who had flown to other countries. The entire family is now in quarantine and will not be able to attend the funeral of the physician who was the head of the family.
