“Earlier the intimation period was 6-7 days but now it’s around 15 days, till the time patient would come to know about the virus, it would have badly damaged his body,” she said.

“Delhi is the worst-hit place at the moment, we have seen how bureaucrats, other VIPs are getting exposed to this covid19,” she said.

Expressing grave concern over the deteriorating health circumstances of her husband, Dr Bilquis said, “The most worrying thing is that many prisoners and jail staff members were tested Covid positive. Shabbir Shah sick but nobody attends him due to Covid-19 scare”.
