Iranian student under quarantine in Budapest denies all accusations regarding her supposedly violent behaviour towards stuff and refusing to follow the rules. She talks honestly about what is going on inside the hospital walls on Instagram.
As we have reported earlier, Hungary confirmed the first coronavirus cases at the beginning of March 2020. Two Iranian students, though symptom-free, were diagnosed with COVID-19 and were taken to Budapest’s St. László Hospital. 24.hu reports that one of these Iranian students, who has been under quarantine for four days, has been reporting live on Instagram about the situation inside the hospital.
The student reacted on Instagram to the accusations that surfaced in state press about certain Iranian students who were violent in the hospital.
The student denied going around the rules, and she claims that she never behaved violently towards the authorities. She has been trying to cooperate ever since she has been under quarantine. Even though the staff speaks very little English at the hospital, she has always tried to follow every rule and behave appropriately.
The student has been under quarantine for four days, and she is expected to stay for at least two weeks. So far, she has been tested once, and the results came back negative. She does not know when the second test is going to be taken.
The student has also shed light on the fact that the hospital does not have enough capacity to separate those who test positive from those whose tests come back negative. For example, the other Iranian student (who tested negative on two tests) was placed in the same room with another patient who had a high fever, was coughing, and tested positive for COVID-19.
The student also said that hospital staff asked people who tested positive for the virus not to upset other patients in the same room by broadcasting the news, better keep it to themselves in order to avoid panic. Some patients were not willing to withhold this information from their roommates, and in that matter, they did break the rules, she said.
The student also said that WHO and other international protocols are not being followed in the hospital.
