PATNA: Amid surge in Coronavirus cases in Bihar, a video shared by RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav has amplified reports about medical negligence to COVID-19 positive patients.

The video is reportedly said to be from AIIMS, Patna. In the video, two patients can be seen lying on the footpath wearing PPE kits, possibly awaiting for COVID-19 treatment. One of them is reportedly said to be a government officer.

It is alleged that they were denied admission into the hospital.

Tejashwi who shared the video, wrote on Twitter in Hindi which translates to, "The man lying on the footpath of AIIMS, Patna is Corona positive. Government, administration and the hospital, no one is listening. In the coming days, the situation is going to be worse. The government is not inquiring upon it. Even if the government is inquiring, it is hiding numbers. God save Bihar."
