Basanti Patra, a 93-year-old woman who was diagnosed with COVID-19 on October 2 and was admitted to the hospital three days later, has recovered on Sunday, according to SUM Covid Hospital, Bhubaneswar.
Basanti Patra, the mother of Jaleswar legislator Aswini Kumar Patra, was diagnosed with the virus on October 2 and was admitted into the hospital three days later complaining of fever and vomiting.
