Misuse of conditional permission for patients from Kasargod : Complaints lodged

Mangalore Today News Network

Mangaluru, April 10, 2020:  Though the Mangaluru-Kasargod border has been opened at Talapady for ambulances from Kasargod  with pre-conditions, the same has been misused  by some people from Kerala,  allege two complaints filed at Ullal Police station.



Following the Supreme Court ruling, the district administration had allowed ambulances from Kasargod subject to the condition that the  patients have to submit a certificate to prove that they  are not Covid-19 patients and that the patient should have recommendation letter from the medical officer of Kasargod District Hospital.

The complaints have stated that two patients who arrived on Wednesday had misused the  facility. One patient had come   with a problem of head ache while another patient who too had arrived had later   left in the same ambulance without  informing the doctor, says the complaint.

Meanwhile, a person from Kasargod who had arrived at a hospital in Mangalore for heart treatment had  symptoms of fever  following which he was taken to the district hospital for  Covid-19 test and then brought back. A complaint has been lodged even with regard to this case.   The result of the Covid-19 test is not yet known.

Kerala govt should have initiated talks with Karnataka instead of going to court. There should have been precautions taken to transfer patient. The ambulance should have been allowed but with only one family member and they should be strictly quarantined during their duration in Mangalore. The ambulance should be asked to return without the driver getting out in Mangalore.
