21st August 2020, Tripura: A pregnant lady had to deliver her baby at the entrance of Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital, Tripura as she was Covid19 positive. The doctors have clearly refused the delivery and as she was already in so much labour she had no choice but to deliver at the entrance gate of the Hospital. The incident took at 1.30 am on Friday when she was clearly refused to be admitted by the doctors of the Hospital.
The family members of the lady mentioned that “We brought her to the hospital when she went to her labour. Here she was tested for COVID-19 and her results came positive. After that, the hospital authorities denied her admission,” The family further adds, “We waited for an ambulance for over an hour, but no ambulance arrived. Finally, she gave birth at the hospital gate itself,”
It was only after the delivery and when the situation was getting even more critical, that some medical staff came out from the Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital by wearing PPE kits and took the lady and the newborn inside the hospital.
