#Kolkata: During the day, there was an allegation of stealing the life-saving injection Tosilizumab from Calcutta Medical College Hospital. Not one but two, a total of 26 injections were allegedly stolen. The arrow of accusation is against the doctors and nurses of the hospital. On the one hand, while the corona of the state is fighting to the death to cure the patients, many famous doctors have also lost their lives, then the hue and cry of this vicious cycle has started.

The price is also a lot of Tosilizumab. In the current market price of one Tosilizumab, the price is 50-56 thousand rupees. This injection is also being sold on the black market for two and a half lakh rupees. The market value of the injection stolen from Calcutta Medical College has been reduced to Rs 10 lakh.
