Eight more Covid patients died in the past 24 hours at Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital (RMCH), health officials said on Wednesday.

"Of the deceased, four had tested positive for Covid-19. Among them, one hailed from Chapainawabganj district and the other three belonged to Rajshahi district," said Deputy Director of Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital, Saiful Ferdous.

The remaining four who died at the hospital in the past 24 hours, showed symptoms of Covid, he said. Of them, two hailed from Rajshahi, and two belonged to Chapainawabganj district.

In the past 24 hours, 35 patients have been admitted to the corona unit of the hospital.

With the fresh patients, a total of 227 people are currently undergoing treatment at the hospital.

With the latest development, the overall death tally of Covid patients at the Rajshahi Medical College and Hospital, since June 1, now stands at 80.

The hospital is struggling to accommodate the rising number of Covid patients, officials said.

It should be mentioned that authorities in many districts have imposed strict restrictions – some lockdowns – for different periods to curb further transmission of the Indian variant of coronavirus.
