A senior doctor in Madhya Pradesh tested positive for Covid-19 despite taking both the doses of Covid-19 vaccine, officials said on Saturday. The female doctor works at the state-run Gandhi Medical College in Jabalpur city.
People known to the 48-year-old doctor said that she believed not wearing a mask after getting the second dose and a general lowering of the guard may have caused the infection.
She got the first dose of the Covishield vaccine on January 16 and the second one on March 1, they said.
The doctor tested positive on March 10 and has been advised home quarantine for 14 days.
