GUWAHATI, May 16 - A telephonic conversation by a COVID-19 positive patient Amarjyoti Deka got viral on the social media today where the youth alleged that he is not receiving proper care and treatment.
Deka was admitted to GMCH on April 24 for various other ailments and tested positive for COVID-19 on May 11.
In the audio clip, he spoke to his family members and informed them about the kind of treatment he is receiving.
�No one is doing anything here. They only bring the food in the room but do not feed me. I find it difficult to eat by myself,� a crying Deka alleged in the conversation.
The doctors and nurses at GMCH have dismissed the allegations made by Deka and said it is completely baseless.
GMCH Superintendent Dr Ramen Talukdar said the patient is being monitored regularly and provided necessary care and treatment. �There is no lapse from any of the hospital staff. He wanted his wife as attendant, which was not allowed,� Talukdar said.
Some doctors claimed he is not cooperating with the doctors and nurses from the beginning.
Meanwhile, Health Minister Dr Himanta Biswa Sarma in his tweet said, �Superintendent, GMCH has told me that best possible care has been taken. And at this stage I have to believe my doctors completely. All COVID patients are praising GMCH after their release so far.�
