The Department of Transport Management (DoTM) has requested people not to travel unless absolutely necessary. The DoTM, in a statement on Wednesday, asked people to avoid traveling if it is not absolutely essential in view of the pandemic. The government has allowed long-haul public transportation services to operate from September 17, following the health safety criteria set by the government. The service was suspended in March. Although the lockdown was lifted on July 21, the government did not allow long-route public transport to resume operation.
Bir hospital has denied accusations of medical misconduct on Ram Lakhan Jaiswal’s body. He was 63. In a press statement issued by the hospital on Tuesday evening, the hospital said that the allegations made by Jaiswal’s family members were not based on facts. Rumors of Bir hospital taking out Jaiswal’s eyes quickly spread on social media. Jaiswal’s dead body was brought to the hospital a few days ago from the central jail. The body was in the morgue of the hospital after it tested positive for COVID-19. But on Tuesday, multiple videos were made public by various YouTube channels where Jaiswal’s daughter and some family members were seen accusing the hospital of performing an ‘organ procumbent’ from the dead body.
