Hyderabad: Family members or relatives of over 50 people who have recovered from COVID-19 are not willing to take their loved ones home fearing getting infected, forcing the government to keep them in state-run facilities, a senior official said on Monday.

According to Dr Prabhakar Rao, nodal officer for COVID-19 at Gandhi Hospital here, about 50 such people are
being kept at Nature Cure Hospital as their kin did not come forward to take them home.

“We had 60 such cases where the relatives or family members refused to take the recovered people home fearing that
they and their children would also get infected. We are trying to convince them. As of now 50 such people, both men and women, are being kept at the Nature Cure Hospital,” Dr Prabhakar Rao told PTI.

Some of the recovered patients are aged people, including a 93-year old woman and are still in Gandhi Hospital
while the rest have been sent to different facilities.

“We cannot use police force on the kin and ask them to take them back home. We are counselling them saying there is no harm due to the recovered persons. Some three or four people were taken home after we convinced them,” he added.
