Bollywood singer Kanika Kapoor has been again tested positive for COVID-19. Kanika is currently admitted to the Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences in Lucknow. Her her family members had earlier raised questions about her initial reports.
In a recent interview, Kanika Kapoor had complained of being ‘ill-treated’ by the hospital staff. She had claimed, “I’ve been here since 11 am and all I’ve been given is a small bottle of water to drink. I’ve been asking these people to give me something to eat but I’ve only been given two small bananas and an orange that had flies on it. I am so hungry, I haven’t even taken the medicine that I was supposed to till now. I have fever, I’ve informed them, but no one has attended to me. The food I brought with me has been taken away. I can’t even eat anything that’s given to me as I am allergic to some foods. I am hungry, thirsty and I feel miserable here.”
To this, the Director of SGPGIMS, RK Dhiman had on Sunday said that Kanika Kapoor was getting the best of facilities and treatment by the hospital staff. He dismissed her claims that the hospital was dusta and was full of mosquitoes.
“The hospital staff at her disposal is for a four-hour shift during which they cannot eat or drink because they wear anti-infection equipment. Every four hours one team is ‘donned off’ their gear and another shift takes over. The room is cleaned every four hours. Kanika Kapoor’s claims are all baseless,” Dr Dhiman had said.
