Former West Bengal chief minister Buddhadeb Bhattacharya has contracted Covid-19. Doctors have advised him to be in-home isolation, health department sources confirmed.

The wife of 77-year-old Bhattacharya, Mira Bhattacharya, also tested positive for the infection, following which she was admitted to a city hospital late Tuesday evening, they said.

"Swab samples of Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, his wife and their attendant were collected this morning and they tested positive for the disease," a source said on Tuesday.

A medical board has been formed for Mrs Bhattacharya at the hospital, he added.
