Government Medical College and Hospital, Nagpur
A 28-year-old Nagpur resident from Nandanvan in south Nagpur tested positive for COVID-19 on the 17th day of his return from the United Kingdom.
Suspecting possibility of a new mutated variant of the COVID-19 virus, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) sent samples of the infected youth to National Institute of Virology (NIV), Pune, on Wednesday, to check whether the viral genome sequencing resembles the mutated strain B.1.1.7 lineage reported in the UK.
Meanwhile, the youngster has been admitted to a special ward at the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in the city. Officials from the hospital informed that he had returned from UK on November 29, after which he developed fewer and other mild symptoms of COVID-19 in early December and tested positive on December 14.
Alongside him, four other family members tested positive, from which two tested positive the same day as him and other two tested positive the following day. Reportedly, before getting tested, he had also visited his relatives in Gondia who also tested positive later.
GMCH collected two swab samples, out of which, one was sent to NIV and other was handed to NMC.
As per directives issued by the state government, NMC commissioner Radhakrishnan B on Tuesday appealed to passengers returning from Europe, Middle East and South Africa to get in touch with NMC for further procedure. The youth voluntarily got in touch with NMC control room and informed them about his travel history for the past month.
As a precautionary measure, India suspended all flights from UK till December 31 and airport authorities have also started screening all UK return passengers at airports for the last two days.
Until now, the city recorded 3302 active cases with a recovery rate of 93.1%. Cases in Vidarbha are recorded up to 2.5 lakh while the recoveries touched 2.28 lakh on Sunday.

Shashi Tharoor is capable of bringing Congress back in power, says Congress leader Ashish Deshmukh
Former MLA and Member of Parliamentary Board, MPCC Dr Ashish Deshmukh speaking about the nomination filed by Congress MP Shashi Tharoor for the post of Congress President on Friday, said, “Dr Shashi Tharoor is a popular Congress MP who has done remarkable work for the nation at the international level. It’s very welcoming thing that the election of Congress President is being done in a democratic manner. This is an important step for decentralisation in the party and the future of Congress is bright. Soniaji and Rahulji Gandhi contributed a lot to strengthen the party.”
Congress leader Deshmukh added, “This is an important step taken by the Congress elites for the elections in a democratic manner so that the party can take a higher flight. Dr Shashi Tharoor has cordial relations with everyone in the party; he has the ability to give a new direction to the party. I believe that he will be able to handle the responsibility of bringing the Congress to power in the country by taking the party forward with new strength. If he seriously deals with issues like unemployment, industry, agriculture, inflation then Congress will have fruitful days. By doing transparent politics, he will definitely convey the thought of Congress to the people at the grassroots level. If you want a rejuvenated, bigger and dynamic Congress party, Dr. Shashi Tharoor is the right candidate. He has the open support of Congress delegates in 12 states and is getting the support of Congress leaders and activists from all over India. He will be elected for sure.”
Deshmukh informed that Tharoor would be visiting Nagpur on October 1 and 2 to hear out all thoughts of Congress delegates.
Nagpur citizens to revel The Raaas Garba next year!
Since The Raaas enchanted and enthralled Nagpur with its quality garba in its first year in 2018, the demand for encore has been reverberating the city. To cater to the huge public demand, the organisers of the king of garbas have decided to continue The Raaas next year on. Like its first year, The Raaas Garba will be presented to Nagpur in association with Nation Next in 2023. Mahesh Kukreja, the key organiser said, “Because of some reasons, we, earlier, thought of giving the event a break.”
He added, “Then COVID-19 struck the world. Now we plan to continue it from next year onwards. While I express my gratitude to Nagpurians to make the event a huge hit, I request the city’s garba revellers to not get fooled as a few garbas are falsely claiming to be The Raaas. We’ll be back next year for sure!”
