Bareilly (Uttar Pradesh) [India], Sept. 2 (ANI): HIV positive woman gave birth to a still born in Bareilly after the district hospital in Uttar Pradesh's Badaun allegedly denied her admission.

The woman was rushed to the district hospital earlier on Saturday night after she complained of severe labour pain, but the hospital staff denied her treatment after learning that she was HIV positive.

The victim's husband said that the hospital in Islam Nagar earlier denied treatment to his wife and referred her to the district hospital in Badaun where they were denied admission.

"She has AIDS, they told me to take her to Bareilly. We were there the whole day and when her condition deteriorated at night, the hospital staff asked us to take her to Bareilly district hospital. At around 12 a.m., I took her to Bareilly and at 5 a.m. they did her operation," he told ANI.

"They said that my wife has AIDS and that they cannot treat her. They also asked me to arrange for blood," he added.

Chief Medical Officer (CMO) of Bareilly district hospital Dr Alka Sharma said that they immediately attended the patient but were not able to save the child.

"The child was already dead when they arrived here. The doctors are taking care of the mother. The woman had an obstructed labour and required an immediate surgery. Had they come to us earlier, the child could have been saved. The condition of the woman is stable now," Dr Sharma said. (ANI)
