UP: COVID-19 Cases Soar, Patients Flee Hospitals D

In the midst of the COVID-19 outbreak, the health infrastructure in Uttar Pradesh has been laid bare. In the Rajshree Medical College, Bareilly, rainwater was seen gushing through the ceiling on the beds of coronavirus patients. A video of the flooded COVID-19 ward has gone viral on social media.

On poor conditions of corona hospitals in UP,  Congress General Secretary in-charge of East Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi has launched a scathing attack against the Yogi government. Gandhi in a tweet blasted the UP govt’s poor management of health care facilities in the state. 

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav also tweeted the video and took a dig at the Yogi govt. 

But this is not a standalone case of one hospital in Uttar Pradesh. Recently, a video of Eastern UP’s Chandauli went viral where COVID-19 patients can be seen escaping from quarantine facilities and hospitals due to poor management. According to media reports, 17 out of 26 corona patients in Chandauli district have been apprehended with the help of local police and administration while raids are being conducted in search of others. The situation is getting worse in the capital city Lucknow, where there is a growing queue of coronavirus patients and many are unable to get beds in the hospital.
