Telangana police struggle to stop influx of corona patients from AP
The Suryapet police have set up a check-post at Ramapuram in Kodad mandal on the Telangana-Andhra border and not allowing the ambulances carrying Covid-19 patients from Andhra Pradesh to enter into the Telangana. They are making it clear to kin of coronavirus patients that ambulances will be allowed into their state only if they have letters from the hospitals confirming availability of beds.
Several people residing in border mandals of AP visit hospitals in Khammam and Hyderabad for medical treatment. According to sources, the Telangana government has reportedly directed the police not to allow patients of other states due to shortage of oxygen beds.
