National Film Award winner Prabir Mitra has not been keeping well for the past few months. The actor has been suffering from arthritis, and he generally stays indoors due to knee ache. Recently, he tested positive for COVID-19.
Mitra, who often has to visit the hospital, started feeling unwell during a doctor's appointment. His family was worried, as he had some symptoms of COVID-19. He was admitted to the hospital, and afterwards, his test results for the respiratory disease came out positive.
After staying in an isolation ward of the hospital for 14 days, the actor tested negative for COVID-19, and was discharged. He is currently at his residence in Shegun Bagicha, but the doctors have asked him to visit the hospital again on July 14. "I am not doing very well. I ask for prayers from my fans and loved ones," said Mitra.
His family has been taking care of him. "My father-in-law has been unwell for quite a while now, but he is a strong person," shared his daughter-in-law Sonia Yeasmin.
The actor is currently on bed rest. The Daily Star family wishes him a speedy recovery.
