Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital (RMCH) authorities have shut down its corona unit amidst sharp decline in the number of patients suffering from Covid-19 in the region.


RMCH Director Brig Gen Shamim Yazdani told the journalists that they closed the unit on May 13. 


In the previous couple of days, only two to three patients with symptoms of corona were undergoing treatment in the unit and they returned home after being cured on May 12.


At present, there is no patient. If any patients with corona symptoms come in the days to come they will be referred to the Infectious Disease Hospital, he said. 
In March 2020, the RMCH management had opened the designated unit with more than 454 beds with oxygen facilities to fight against the Covid-19 pandemic.
