Mumbai: Overcrowded Hospital Makes Patients Lie Next To Bodies

Chandran |May 08, 2020

A hospital in Mumbai is receiving backlashes for placing dead bodies who have coronavirus next to living patients. The horrible and dangerous living conditions of patients are causing outrage all over India.

A clip taken by phone shows that Covid-19 patients lie next to bodies due to overcrowdedness. The incident took place in Mumbai.

News outlets have reported this horrific scene at Sion, one of the main treatment hubs for patients diagnosed with Covid-19.

Sion hospital, where the scandal took place.

In the short clip that is circulating all over social network sites, around 7 dead bodies wrapped in plastic bags were still placed in a treatment room. What shocking is that right next to them, in nearby beds, are fellow ALIVE patients. Moreover, their relatives appear calm and nonchalant as if they have grown numb to this scene of patients lie next to bodies.

The original clip was shared by opposing party’s Nitesh Rane, with a caption that says:

"In Sion hospital, patients are sleeping next to dead bodies!!! This is the extreme…what kind of administration is this! Very very shameful!!"

Sharing the same sentiment, another fellow politician, Milind Deodra, also express their disbelief:

"Outraged to see corpses laid beside the sick at Sion Hospital. Why isn't BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) following WHO prescribed protocols when disposing of COVID-19 corpses? Public hospital staff is doing their best with limited resources at hand. Mumbai's administration needs to step up NOW!"

Is it really safe like the hospital assured?

After causing backlash, the hospital’s president Pramod Ingale offered his explanation for having patients lie next to bodies. In response, said that the reason the bodies were still there was that relatives of the deceased REFUSED to take them back home. He told a press-member:

"That is the reason why the bodies were kept there unattended. We have now removed the bodies and are probing the matter."

However, Sion hospital authorities later assured the public that there is no worry about the virus spreading. They reasoned that the bags are secured and were looked after, thus everyone on the premises was safe.
