Maha: Gynaecologist gets infected during delivery after Couple hides COVID positive status of pregnant patient
Mumbai: A Mumbai based doctor has been infected with coronavirus after delivering the baby of a COVID positive patient who allegedly concealed her COVID positive status from the hospital and the doctor.
According to a recent media report, the couple allegedly hid the fact that the mother-to-be is COVID positive and the pregnant woman got admitted to the Non-COVID maternity Hospital in Malad. The 33-year-old woman not only allegedly ended up infecting the doctor, who despite learning about the lie helped deliver the baby, but also put other staffers at risk.
The hospital is contemplating taking legal actions against the couple to prevent such incidents in the future.
