Did negligence by doctors cause community transmission in Bhilwara?

Mar 27, 2020 12:47 IST

Bhilwara in Rajasthan has been crowned the state's coronavirus capital. It is also the place from where Rajasthan reported its first Covid-19 death. Bhilwara is a case in point of what not to do in case of a contagion like Covid-19. An investigation has revealed that a person from Bhilwara, was admitted to five different hospitals in the area, as he increasingly deteriorated, before finally being tested positive for the virus on Wednesday. The patient, is believed to have transmitted the infection to several patients in these hospitals, along with doctors. What followed next, was several coronavirus-infected doctors treated hundreds of patients before themselves testing positive for the virus. The administration has now imposed a curfew in nine villages of Bhilwara. Twenty-six members of the patient's family have also been quarantined.
