In a similar but unrelated incident, a COVID-19 infected woman died on May 19, after allegedly being savagely and mercilessly gang-raped by three hospital employees in Patna, India.

The horrifying and inhumane incident reportedly happened at the private Paras-HMRI hospital in Patna, India where the patient was undergoing treatment for COVID-19, Latin Times reported.

"My mother was sexually assaulted by three persons inside the hospital ICU on May 16. She had informed me about the incident. Since then her health condition deteriorated. I spoke to my relatives and the women's wing of the Jan Adhikar Party (JAP) about the incident," the deceased woman's daughter posted on social media.

The woman’s daughter added that the hospital's administration forcefully transitioned her mother to ventilator support following the report of the assault.

"I suspect that the doctors in the hospital intubated her in the neck so that she couldn't give her statement to the police. Now they have declared her dead," she said in her post on social media.

Physician P.D. Gupta from the hospital's management clarified that the hospital management followed an internal inquiry based on the allegations by the woman’s daughter and asserted that the alleged incident did not happen in the hospital premises.

Duty Magistrate of Patna M.L. Khan reportedly ordered a post-mortem examination of the patient's body to confirm whether the woman was sexually assaulted.

Meanwhile, the hospital administration previously cited COVID-19 as the cause of her death.
