Bollywood model Ishika Borah, who had tested positive for Covid-19 on June 24, alleged that she is not getting proper treatment in hospital.

Ishika, who hails from Assam, reportedly expressed her “suicidal tendencies”.

She is undergoing treatment at a government hospital in central Assam’s Nagaon.

Nagaon deputy commissioner Jadav Saikia said Borah has been undergoing treatment at the district government hospital for a few days after she was diagnosed with Covid-19.

“I am not aware of her complaints and lack of medical services in the hospital. You better talk to the doctors concerned,” Saikia said.

Celebrated model Borah, who was featured on the cover of “Debonair” for four times, in a series of tweets talked about the condition of the hospital and “negligence of the health staffs”.

“The hospital gives me cold water and food to have, and take bath which is spoiling my health more. The service is poor quality, unhygienic hospital, mosquitos have affected my body badly. I exercise at home, eat a healthy diet,” she tweeted.

In another tweet, she said: “I am knowledgeable about Covid-19 treatment cured by organic way. Turmeric warm water, vitamin-c, cucumber and tomatoes, Chawanvrash, Asawagandha, Giloy. This can heal and cure the initial stage of Covid. Pls help me, I am getting distressed and suicidal tendencies, because of depression now.”

“For this minor temperature, I could have taken care of myself in a more better way with organic medicines, herbs, soups, vitamin-c fruit etc. Dr and Nurse have never come to see us, so why (did) they kept us here,” she said in another tweet.

She said, “I am Ishika Borah, Actress & model forcefully taken to govt hospital in Noagoan, I live in Mumbai. I came to Assam to my home town. I had a mild temperature, but I could have quarantined at home for 14-days as per govt instructions.”

Borah was diagnosed with Covid-19 on June 24 when she had gone to visit her home town Nagaon.
