I am doing much better: Wriddhiman Saha
When Wriddhiman had tested positive, there were a lot confusing test results during his recovery process. In the second test, he was tested positive while the third test came as negative. Thus, he had to quarantine for the entire 14-day period in Delhi.
He also took to Twitter to clarify about his condition. “My quarantine period is still not over. As a part of the routine check-up, 2 tests were done, out of which 1 was negative and the other one came as positive. Otherwise, I am doing much better. Requesting everyone not to spread misleading stories/information without the whole context,” Saha had written.
