New Delhi, April 19 (IANS) A man created quite a ruckus at a Delhi hospital for a few hours on Sunday, claiming he was infected with coronavirus and would infect anyone who dared to approach him with his blood.
The drama unfolded at the Safdarjung Hospital in the afternoon, with the man somehow reaching the third-floor balcony of Ward Number 29, Delhi Fire Service Director Atul Garg told IANS.
Garg said the fire brigade got a call around 3.45 p.m. about the man who threatening that if anyone tried to approach him, he would infect them with his blood by inflicting cuts on his hand.
