A woman tested positive for COVID-19 in Patna on Saturday, taking the total number of such cases in the state to 10, an official said here. Pradip Das, the director of Rajendra Memorial Research Institute - an ICMR centre here which had been conducting the bulk of tests, told PTI that the woman is undergoing treatment at NMCH hospital here.
"She was among those who had come into contact with the first victim in the state from Munger at a private hospital here," Das said.
