Bangaluru, May 11 : All the 343 passengers, who arrived from London, were found to be asymptomatic on arrival except a 27-year-old woman who had an incomplete abortion and vomiting on arrival.
She has been shifted to KC General Hospital in Malleshwaram. Dr Prabhu Dev Gowda, an officer on duty for COVID-19 screening at Kempegowda International Airport said, "A 27-year-old woman has had an incomplete abortion of her three-month-old foetus before taking the flight from London. She was vomiting on arrival. She was shifted to Aster CMI Hospital for emergency care. Thereafter, she and her husband were shifted to KC General Hospital.
They will be in isolation there. Since there is nobody to look after her, we have to let the husband accompany her to the hospital where they will be in quarantine. The patient was famished and was provided a few idlis on arrival, he added. After she recovers at the hospital, the couple will be shifted to a hotel. As per protocol, their throat swabs were taken for COVID-19 testing too.
All passengers whether symptomatic or not are being tested for COVID-19. Official sources said that all the passengers have chosen to go to hotels over government hostels. We're yet to tabulate how many have chosen budget hotels, three-star and five-star hotels. Twenty of them are still here. The process is continuing. (UNI)
