TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty falls ill 4 days after taking jab at fake vax camp


Guwahati: Four days after Trinamool Congress MP Mimi Chakraborty took a jab at a fake Covid vaccination camp, the actor-turned-politician on Saturday complained of dehydration and stomach cramps.

Mimi felt dizzy following a round of profuse sweating and was later attended by doctors who diagnosed her with low blood pressure.

However, the doctors are not yet sure if it is an effect of the fake vaccine that was administered to her. She has been kept under strict medical supervision.

According to reports, she first felt discomfort on Saturday morning, four days after she received her jab at the supposed vaccination site.

The actor-turned-politician’s house physician was summoned to the residence early on Saturday morning. Her medical complications included acute stomach ache and profuse sweating.

Although she was advised to get herself admitted to a hospital, Mimi reportedly refused and opted for home treatment instead.

It has also been reported that the Trinamool MP had some previous medical conditions — gallbladder sludge and a sluggish liver.

However, it is not yet known if the ‘vaccine’ dose she received — probably antibacterial injections — triggered any adverse side-effects.

“The vials (from the fake vaccination camp) have been collected and sent for forensic tests. It will take another four-five days to get the report. Presently it is impossible to say whether Chakraborty’s health condition was the result of the vaccine shot,” said an official of the Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC).
