Bengal Covid Patient Comes Home Days After Being Declared Dead. (Representational)

In a bizarre incident, an elderly coronavirus patient was brought back home in West Bengal's North 24 Parganas district by his family members, a week after they received "his body" from a COVID hospital and cremated it.

Shibdas Bandyopadhyay, a resident of Birati, returned home a day before the family members were to perform his shradh.

The 75-year-old man was admitted to the hospital in Barasat on November 11 after he tested positive for COVID-19 and two days later his family members were informed of his demise, a health department official said on Saturday.

The body was kept in a plastic bag, following COVID protocols, and shown to the family members from a distance, and they said they could not see the face clearly.

"We cremated the body and were prepared to perform the shradh today. However, we got a call yesterday. Someone told us that my father has recovered and we should arrange for an ambulance to take him home from the hospital," Mr Bandyopadhyay's son said.
