In a shocking incident, two Coronavirus positive patients, who are being treated in an isolation ward of Gandhi Hospital in Hyderabad, allegedly assaulted a junior doctor after one of their family member receiving the treatment died in the same ward. Hyderabad police have registered a case against the duo, which allegedly attacked the hospital staff.
As per reports, four members of the family: three male and one female, were earlier admitted in the isolation ward in Hyderabad’s hospital after each of the family member were tested positive for coronavirus.
After the 49-year-old member of the family died due to the virus on Wednesday evening, the two male members attacked a general medicine junior doctor blaming hospital doctors for the death.
“One of the patients was in a critical condition since the last two days. We had informed the family members about his critical condition but they did not permit us to intubate the patient. After he died, they both slapped the doctor and also assaulted the security guard,” reported a junior doctor from the hospital.
