Suspected coronavirus patient left hospital for home after stray dogs entered ward: Family
Srinagar: A woman, who had returned from Europe last week and admitted to a hospital here with symptoms for coronavirus, left the facility for home after stray dogs entered her ward, her family said on Thursday, refuting the administration’s claim that she had escaped.
“The claims of the administration that they had tracked her are nothing but lies. We had to take her out of the Chest Disease Hospital at Dalgate at 3 am as there were stray dogs in the ward where she was admitted,” a relative of the woman told PTI.
He said the woman had cooperated with the authorities ever since she returned home.
“She was checked at the airport and asked to go home. We kept her in isolation but she developed some symptoms on Tuesday and we called the COVID helpline. An ambulance arrived and she was taken to the CD hospital where she was admitted,” he said.
The relative said the woman called home around 2.30 am on Wednesday night, saying she was scared as several stray dogs had entered the ward. (PTI)
