NOT SURE IF BAPU DHAM PARTY INFO IS AUTHENTIC: DOC
CHANDIGARH : The community medicine department head at Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, treating the 30-year-old Covid positive OT attendant of the hospital, has told the police that the patient’s contact list, which features 123 names, includes people whom he had met in the weeks preceding his infection.
His statement comes 10 days after hospital director-principal Dr BS Chavan said that the patient had picked up the infection outside the hospital, and had hosted 123 people at his wedding anniversary party on his rooftop in Bapu Dham Colony, Sector 26.
In response to police queries, the community medicine department head said in a written statement, “The OT attendant at the GMCH-32 was found corona positive on April 24. Some of his neighbours commented that the party was organised either on April 17 or 23. However, we are not sure that it is authentic information.”
‘HOUSE NOT BIG ENOUGH TO HOST 100 PEOPLE’
On inspecting the patient’s neighbourhood, senior cops found that he lived with 19 family members in a house built on a little over a marla (27 sq yards).
“The rooftop where the party is being claimed to have taken place is 9 feet by 30 feet in size. It cannot accommodate more than 100 guests,” said a senior official, requesting anonymity.
