Virus test

Calcutta, April 11: The admission of a man who reported “breathing problems” at Beliaghata’s Infectious Diseases Hospital today prompted the authorities to send samples of his blood for tests to the School of Tropical Medicine in Calcutta and the Indian Council of Medical Research in Delhi.

Officials discounted the possibility of the man, who hails from Midnapore, suffering from the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome as he had not travelled to any far-east Asian country from where the disease is supposed to have spread.
