AGARTALA, Aug 21 (TIWN): In a bizzare incident, one pregnant lady was forced to gave birth to child in the hospital ground as no staff from IGM hospital wasn't ready to take her in labour room.

Reportedly, on yesterday night when a pregnant lady was taken to IGM hospital the security guard of the hospital did not let her enter in the hospital, claiming that she was Covid-19 positive. The lady was made standing infront of the hospital door and was not even provided one chair to sit, alleged one eyewitness. The lady was crying in labour pain but after the family members called for hospital staffs for a lot of times, no person appeared on the spot.

Later the lady was forced to give birth to her child in the ground itself. After the delivery when the other patients started shouting, finally two hospital staffs came to the spot and took the baby inside the hospital. And later the mother was also taken in the hospital in a stretcher. 
 
The local people alleged, if the lady was corona positive why without protection they took her inside the hospital instead of GB. Why they couldn't take her inside before the delivery then, alleged the eyewitnesses.
 
This horrific incident left everyone in shock. People raised question on the constantly degrading status of the Health Department of Tripura under CM Biplab Deb. 
 
However, no official statement was made by the hospital authority yet.
