The man who had committed suicide by jumping from the seventh floor of New Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital, where he was admitted earlier this month on suspicion for being infected with coronavirus, had tested negative for COVID-19.
On March 18, the man was brought from the Indira Gandhi International Airport and immediately put up in the isolation ward after being admitted in the hospital at 9 pm.
The 23-year-old youth who had returned from Sydney forced open the isolation ward in the seventh floor and jumped from there within few minutes after being admitted.
The man’s samples which were taken for COVID-19 tests came out to be negative after a few days.
His family, who resides in Punjab’s Balachaur district, blamed the health officials and airport staff for misbehaving with suspected coronavirus patients.
