MUMBAI: As per a recent news update that stated 4 patients escaped the isolation ward they were kept in, in order to get tested for coronavirus, many celebrities used their social media handles to express disappointment regarding the ignorant attitude of the people during the COVID-19 pandemic. They also asked everyone to trust the medical process and authorities.

Bipasha Basu tweeted, "How can people be so ignorant and irresponsible... we as citizens need to be aware and do everything possible for our govt to help us in this situation ... not add to it by being so frustratingly irresponsible. Shocked!!!!"

Actor Riteish Deshmukh also shared his views about the same issue and expressed, "This is so so irresponsible. Let the Government/ Medical Authorities help you. By isolating yourself you can de-risk strangers, your friends, your loved ones & get the right treatment. We all are soldiers, we all have to and we will fight this together. #IndiaUnited #coronavirus."

Director turned producer Hansal Mehta also called out this incident and seemed quite outraged but also conflicted in his tweet, "Disgusting lack of civic sense. Should their identities be made public so that they are sent into isolation immediately and people, in general, are alert? I'm a bit conflicted on this..."

 

The incident took place on 13 March 2020, when 4 patients escaped from a government-run hospital in Nagpur, Maharashtra. They were brought in as they were suspected to have the highly-contagious virus.

During questioning one of the patients mentioned, " We were using the same washroom and the same ward that was being used by the positive patient. When our request to shift all the suspect patients to another isolation ward for observation went unheeded, we decided to leave the place at night. We all came to the hospital at the same time and underwent tests. However, reports of two of us reporting negative at night only. We repeatedly told the hospital staff about the reports of other suspects but didn’t get any response that made us leave the place at night."
