“A pregnant woman who is said to have been rushed in from another hospital (supposedly a private one) was said to have developed serious health condition from the private hospital, where the baby in her womb has died upon diagnosis.
“Health workers who attended to her never knew she was a Covid-19 patient until after her death.
“Authorities of the RSUTH are making frantic effort, and have isolated some of its staff who are believed to have come in contact with the victim for quarantine.
“Some of the patients especially in the Department Obstetrics and Gynecology where she was treated, and visitors alike are running away from the vicinity.”
