Shunned by neighbours and relatives, COVID-19 AP woman patient spends two days on road

South India

In a shocking incident, a woman, who tested positive for coronavirus, spent two days on the road after she was denied entry into her apartment as well as in her in-law’s house.

The woman was staying along with her husband at an apartment in the 15th division. Her husband, who first tested positive for the virus, was admitted at the Naryana Hospital. However, the hospital denied admission to the women, who later got infected with the virus, citing lack scarcity of beds.

The hospital authorities advised her to go home and remain under isolation. Left with no other option, she returned to her apartment, but to her shock, her neighbours in the apartment complex did not allow her to step into her flat, according to Sakshi Post.

Shunned by the neighbours, she then went to her in-law's house which is in 14th division. But even her parents-in-law denied her entry into their house fearing COVID-19 infection. Following this, she was forced to spend two days on the road.

Minister Anil Kumar, who came to know about the incident, immediately sent 15th division YSRCP in-charge Venkateshwar to the woman’s in-law's house and spoke to the mother-in-law and the woman over phone. However, they remained adamant on their stand.

The minister later directed Narayana Hospital to admit her for treatment. Following the intervention by the district officials, the woman was admitted to Narayana Hospital where she is currently being treated for the virus.
