Resident medical officer of the hospital, Wahid Mahmud Robin said the patient had been undergoing treatment in the red zone of the isolation ward of the hospital since 9 January.
“He went missing from the hospital on Tuesday afternoon.”
Kalam returned from India on 9 January through the Darshana border and tested positive for Covid-19. Later, he was taken to Chuadanga Sadar Hospital.
On Tuesday morning, the hospital authorities collected his sample for retest and his results emerged negative, said Wahid. “We suspect that Kalam left the hospital without informing anyone.”
