The woman was admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital after she was diagnosed with Coronavirus. The woman was allegedly tied up to prevent her from falling off the bed

In a shocking incident, an elderly woman from Kadangode was allegedly tied to a bed in a Coronavirus ward at the Government Medical College Hospital in Thrissur in Kerala. The 65-year old woman, identified as Kunjubheevi, had high blood pressure and was earlier undergoing treatment at a Coronavirus centre in Kuttanellur.

As per reports, the woman was admitted to the Government Medical College Hospital, after she was diagnosed with the Wuhan Coronavirus on October 20. The woman was allegedly tied up to prevent her from falling off the bed. Nevertheless, she fell from the bed and had injuries on her face and head. The Coronavirus-infected woman is now undergoing treatment at a private hospital and her condition is said to be stable.
