Lucknow, April 21 (TIWN) In a major relief to pregnant women, the Lucknow District Magistrate Roshan Jacob has said that such women will be admitted in hospitals and given medical care without waiting for the mandatory Covid report.

According to once such complaint, a young woman from New Town had been consulting a gynaecologist and obstetrics attached with a mother-and-child specialty hospital since the beginning of her pregnancy. She was to have a full term C-section delivery in the hospital in mid-July. With Covid test becoming mandatory before any surgical procedure, her swab samples were tested a few days before the C-section. The reports came positive. Her husband alleged that the hospital she had been consulting for nine months denied the services once the report arrived. The woman later delivered the child in another private hospital. “Three such cases have come to our notice though no formal complaint has been lodged. This is unfortunate and can be avoided. The advisory is, therefore, meant at addressing this issue. This will benefit the clinical establishments and the patients as well,” said justice (retired) Ashim Kumar Banerjee, chairman of WBCERC.
