Don't mention Covid as a cause of death, official says; deviated as a note goes viral

Hours after a confidential note from his office went viral on social media, the medical superintendent and deputy director (MSVP) of Murshidabad Medical College and Hospital (MMCH) was transferred Thursday.

The duty for MMCH doctors, signed by Saha, circulating on social media caused much embarrassment to the Bengal government. The list of shifts of three shifts from April 27 to May 17 published on April 25 mentions in its footnote a notice about the deed death certificates. “Cause of death will be the usual cause. No mention of in death certificates of Covi positive cases,” Saha said. The state government transferred Saha to North and Hospital as professor anaesthesiology department.
