After reporting over 2,000 cases on each day in the last week, Bangalore was apparently returning to normalcy with considerable amount of decrease in the no of COVID cases each passing day. When the people of the city were breathing a sigh of relief, they are in for shock with the city registering 2,233 positive cases.
Dr K Sudhakar took to his Twitter account to condemn the assault on the 108 driver in Bangalore. The Medical Education Minister shared a video of the assault and wrote, "It is inhuman to attack a corona warrior, ambulance driver at the premises of MS Ramaiah Hospital in Bangalore. It is not right to attack a 108 driver, who has come to a patient's help without caring about his own life."
Meanwhile, Dr K Sudhakar also expressed his disappointment over the Hospital's negligence. The Minister tweeted, "A 75-year-old man died after he was made to wait in the ambulance by the MS Ramaiah Hospital. It is really sad news. The government is making efforts to decrease the number of deaths. He would have been alive, if the hospital staff had admitted him sooner."
