Tollywood actor turned TMC MP Mimi Chakraborty reportedly fell ill on Saturday a few days after she was administered a fake Covid vaccine, as per sources.
However, the doctor who attended to the Jadavpur MP said it was too early to link her illness with the fake jab that she had taken four days ago, they said. The TMC MP from Jadavpur suddenly started feel under the weather on Friday evening. Soon she fell unconscious after a round of profuse sweating, following which she was given medical help, said reports.
Chakraborty became seriously ill at her residence in the morning and her maid called the family physician, sources close to the renowned actor said. The actor, who has been suffering from gall bladder and liver-related problems, suffered from dehydration, stomach ache and her blood pressure count dipped, they said.
In a video message on Thursday, she had asked people not to panic.

The sources informed that, “Mimi Chakraborty’s condition is now stable and she is under treatment at her home. She is also suffering from hypertension. The doctor who attended to her said her illness cannot be immediately linked to the fake vaccine as she already had a liver problem.”
“She already has gall bladder and liver-related problems,” her doctor told News18 Bangla.
Chakraborty and over 100 others had taken the jab at the fake vaccination centre run by Dev who posed as an IAS officer. After busting the fake COVID-19 vaccination camp, the police brought the accused to the site and seized vials that have been found to be ‘dust and some liquid’.
