She was treated by local doctors following which her symptoms started disappearing and she started feeling healthy again. Since mid-September, she has shown no visible symptoms.
But health officials are at horns of dilemma to find that her COVID test is still positive. Till now all her tests, including 17 RT-PCR and 14 rapid antigen tests, have come out positive, according to Apna Ghar officials.
According to Dr. BM Bharadwaj who heads the Apna Ghar organization , " a few weeks ago, some senior doctors from the microbiology department at Jaipur's SMS Medical college had visited Bharatpur and inspected Sharada. We are keen to get her treated under the guidance and supervision of those doctors in Jaipur. Until permission is granted to move her, Sharada will be continued to receive treatment here." Dr. Bharadwaj also revealed that the last Corona test on Sharada was done on January 8 and she once again had tested positive.
