Kanika Kapoor was recently diagnosed with Coronavirus and made a lot of noise of her alleged careless behaviour towards the disease. The singer was in London when COVID-19 broke out, and despite instructions of home quarantine upon return, she went on to be a part of several public gatherings. Recently, Kapoor accused Hospital staff of ill-treatment and poor service, and now the officials are reacting to it.
For the unversed, Kanika Kapoor announced the news of being hit with Coronavirus on Friday post numerous videos of her being spotted at a Lucknow hospital broke out. Currently admitted at Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, the Baby Doll singer accused the officials of ill-treating her, as if she were a criminal and providing her fruits with flies sitting on it.
Now, in an official statement made by Dr RK Dhiman, Director of the hospital, has reacted to it all by calling her accusations ‘baseless’. “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,” said the official in a conversation with Ahmedabad Mirror.
Furthermore, he revealed that Kanika Kapoor is being provided separate air-conditioned room but is expected to co-operate with medical staff instead of throwing tantrums. “She is being provided Gluten-free diet from the hospital kitchen. The facility provided to her is an isolated room with a toilet, patient-bed, and a television. The ventilation of her room is air-conditioned with a separate Air Handling Unit (AHU) for the COVID-19 unit. Utmost care is being taken, but she must first start behaving as a patient and not a star,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the Bollywood singer has undergone tests for the second time, which has turned out to be positive yet again.
