Coronavirus In India
There are already 2 casualties in India from Coronavirus. A Paytm employee also tested positive from coronavirus. Sporting events like IPL has postponed, the series between India vs South Africa has been canceled, public gatherings have been dissuaded. The Government of several states has closed shopping malls, cinema halls, gyms, swimming pools, schools, colleges as a precautionary measure from coronavirus.
At the end of the day, we the people need to stay alert and safe and keep our surroundings safe. But, recently a 25-year-old woman who was kept in an isolation in Bengaluru left the hospital ward against doctor’s advice and went to Agra to stay with her parents via a flight to Delhi and train to Agra from Delhi according to the reports.
Wife Of Google Employee
A 25-year-old woman from Agra tested positive from coronavirus. Her husband works at Google. He was tested positive earlier this week and she also tested positive on Friday. The couple recently returned from their honeymoon in Italy. The woman was put under quarantine after her husband showed the symptoms of COVID-19. But the lady escaped from the hospital in Bengaluru on March 8, took a flight to Delhi and then traveled to Agra via train at her parent’s home risking the lives of other people. According to a health official from SN Medical College,
“The woman got married to the Bengaluru-based Google employee in early February. The couple left for their honeymoon soon afterward to Italy and later traveled to Greece and France. They landed at Mumbai airport on February 27 and flew back to Bengaluru. However, on March 7, her husband tested positive for Covid-19 and they were both quarantined in Bengaluru. Later, the woman informed her parents about her situation and allegedly at his request, she returned to Agra on March 8.”
Height Of Stupidity
The lady was not ready to cooperate with the medical team. The chief medical officer Dr. Mukesh Kumar Vats from Agra told,
“After the medical team reached the house of the woman’s parents, her father, a railway engineer, refused to cooperate with us and lied that his daughter had left for Bengaluru. But after the district magistrate’s intervention, we were able to gain access to their house and took all the nine family members to the district hospital for screening.”
This is ridiculous and height of stupidity from educated people. Now she is tested positive. She traveled via a flight to Delhi from Bengaluru and also took a train from Delhi to Agra. It means that she might have exposed other people, passengers to the coronavirus.
Chief public relations officer of North Central Railway zone Ajit Singh told,
“The entire Agra Cantt railway station, trains, and railway premises are being sanitized. We also are coordinating with the state authorities to contain the spread of the virus and have set up an isolation ward at the railway hospital. We have alerted our employees to follow proper precautionary measures to avoid getting Covid-19.”
Well, this is really a height of stupidity from a woman. She has endangered the lives of many people now. We all need to cooperate and as well as follow precautions to fight against coronavirus pandemic.
