As the scare over outbreak of Coronovirus continues, the operation theatre of Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed Medical College and Hospital, Barpeta has been sealed off for 24 hours by the medical college authority.

The move followed after it was found that a doctor couple serving at the same hospital had concealed their travel history to Saudi Arabia.

According to reports, the doctor couple recently visited Saudi Arabia and returned back to India on March 9. They joined their duties on March 11 and performed several surgeries in the hospital.

Meanwhile, the couple has been kept in isolation and are in house quarantine for at least 14 days. Health officials are constantly monitoring the health condition of the duo.
