Mangaluru: Woman dies after ambulance allegedly denied entry into city


Daijiworld Media Network - Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, Mar 29: An elderly woman who was being brought to Mangaluru for treatment passed away at Talapady on Karnataka-Kerala border here on Sunday March 29. It has been alleged that she died after the ambulance that was carrying her to the hospital in Mangaluru was not allowed to enter the city.

The deceased has been identified as Fathunhi (70), a resident of Bantwal.

Fatunhi had gone to her son's house in Udyavar of Kasargod district. She was being brought to Mangaluru hospital on Sunday as she fell severely ill.

However, the ambulance carrying sick Fatunji was not allowed to enter the city at Talapady by the police, which allegedly resulted in her death.

The ambulance was reportedly sent back from the border to Kasargod. Fatunhi breathed her last later.

The Karnataka-Kerala border had been closed after several coronavirus cases were reported in Kasargod district. Coronavirus patients were being allegedly brought to Mangaluru for treatement, which led to the closure of the border. However, on Saturday March 29, the borders reopened after pressure from Kerala, but only for vehicles carrying essential commodities. The residents of Kasargod, who depend on Mangaluru hospitals for treatment, have also urged the Mangaluru district administration to keep the borders open.

    Once borders are freezes they shouldn't bring to karnataka border they should have taken nearest kerala hospital.... due to virus spreading fear police are done their duty.... .. once this virus fear is reduced they can come to state... .. but not to any corina patients....
    Do not allow any Corona patients to karnataka...

    Nowhere in the article it was mentioned she had Corona. All it says was she was severely ill. Cops can use some discretion also.

    She might be just across the border from mangalore, and going to kannur or wherever might take a longer time, and in life and death situations, cops should open the border. Maybe station a junior doctor to decide who comes into the state border because the cops don't know anything about medical conditions.

    Cops should have a heart I feel. I feel sad for the woman's family. They came to mangalore because of its medical facilities, and yet was not allowed inside.

    Inshallah hope you all don't have a situation like this in your lifetimes.

    Dear Rahul,

    When it is a life and death situation, people tend to rush to the nearest medical facilities. Of course Kasaragod depends upon Mangalore for its medical needs, but that does not mean Kerala model is bad. Kerala Public healthcare system is by far the best. Please refer Niti Aayog report at http://social.niti.gov.in/uploads/sample/health_index_report.pdf

    Also Mangalore hospitals / educational institutes also thrive on people from Kerala. Look at any hospital in Mangalore, information boards are available in Malayalam as well. Every 2nd or 3rd nurse in Karnataka hospital would be from across the border.

    Had we done proper chowkidaari at the airports in time, the situation would not have arisen.

    Dear Naresh,

    Deep Condolences for the women who expired .Life death situation regarding this is the ambulance driver was responsible then he would have taken the women's to kannur hospital any how it was lock down . There wouldn't have been much delay .I mentioned in one of my comment if the patient was his relative 200% he wouldnt have made attempt to take to mangalore . This has never happened before on a daily basis there would have been so much ambulance to mangalore but nobody stopped .During this crisis there are more patients in Kerala if all come to mangalore then we're we mangaloreans should go , if it was other way round like if situation was vicevera then sure Kerala govt wouldn't had allowed . Also what is the use of you sharing such websites if at all there is no proper infrastructure in the city like education health ,jobs for all u depend on mangalore , Bangalore . Even there are many Kannada medium till kasargod but does that mean kasargod is part of Karnataka no right same way there's are many kerala student in Mangalore agreed also nurses agreed . But there are 10 times more people of Mangalore and Karnataka in every field .Also kannada banners there are in Kerala too .

    Please do not blame on the poor ambulance driver based on your own assumptions. Kannur is 145 Kms from the place of incident whereas Mangalore is just 35 Kms. In the normal circumstances, allowing vehicles is not a favour in a federal structure. It is during the crisis, BEING HUMAN is more important than be a HUMAN BEING.

    No one is advocating free flow of people from Kasaragod to Mangalore as it would put a burden on the public infrastructure of Mangalore, but these are kind of situations which one needs to handle according to the sensitivity of the matter. Regarding the vice versa situation, Kerala always have the history of accommodating everyone. If India today is a pluralistic society, much owes to Kerala as people of all faiths first landed in this part of the country. For your kind information, during Covid-19, Kerala is the only state which insisted migrants to stay back and the Government is taking care of their needs through community kitchens. If ten times the Kannada people can be everywhere and every field, why can’t the Keralites. I never said Mangalore is part of Kerala, only mean to say that businesses in Mangalore thrive on Keralites and that is why they keep even the signboards in Malayalam. If you do not want the people from across the borders to come to Mangalore in this kind of crisis situations (not meaning Corona patients), then you should show the same audacity to say that you will not get treated by Keralite nurses.

    Please understand many pandemics have come and gone and this also will pass through and thereafter people may need each other. Do not be parochial in outlook.

    Also tomorrow if border closes MAHARASTRA AND Karnataka for this crisis we than cant justify this by saying Humanity ,Human being , Business all . Every State has its own govt to take decision. I dint mean never in my life i mean that people shouldn’t cross the border all but depending the present crisis everyone is helpless . Also regarding Keralite Nurse , i informed earlier as well there are more Mangalore Nurse too ,For us all Nurse ,doctor are equal,Also Kerala Nurse you hope y they dint get opportunity to work in Kerala since there are no Hospitals built by ur Govt .Even you don’t be so emotional under ur feet you to have courage to except reality Look into yourself before you realise truth .

    Please do not Justify ambulance driver act based on your own assumptions and for ur dirty politics . No Matter Kannur is 145 Kms even if it was 150 km from the place of incident the ambulance driver would have taken the Patient there having been discussed with the concerned authorities ,Hope you were aware few months back one baby had heart issue in Mangalore and it was taken to Bangalore which is around 350 KMS speaking with concerned authorities having zero traffic with help of police department and GOVT . Same could have done there despite of knowing that the borders are banned. If it was the ambulance driver relative or friend then 200 % he wouldn’t have taken that Risk Got it . Also i taught not to make politics here but since u said about KMS even let me ask why kasargod why there is no Private hospital why u guys depend otherstate In the normal circumstances, allowing vehicles is not a favour in a federal structure that’s why we had no issues in the past . It is during the crisis, BEING HUMAN is more important than be HUMAN BEING agreed 200 % correct that’s why initially few Kerala patients were been allowed but the crisis is not only restricted for people of Kerala . BEING HUMAN is more important than be HUMAN BEING this is applicable for Karnataka people as well . If all the Kerala patients only be in Mangalore then were should Mangalore people go ?? HUMAN BEING concept will be applicable to us also .No Question arises in advocating free flow of people from Kasaragod to Mangalore . Mangalorean’s are capable to handle all situations. It was already been told that borders are banned well in advance it was not something like immediately the ambulance driver was told on spot . sensitivity of the matter will be applicable for Mangalorean’s as well as informed earlier the crisis is all over the world . Imagine a scenario if someone’s parents are not well Simultaneously if their Neighbours are not well . They first give priority to their parents not neighbors

    Regarding the vice versa situation, Kerala always have the history of accommodating everyone that u said Not only Kerala all the state have their own history of accommodating in past. Most of Kerala students come to Mangalore Bangalore for job , studies , carriers that’s the Heart of Karnataka people so don’t claim only Kerala has accommodation and divert the topic .What i meant in my earlier comment was that if it was vice versa like if all the patients of Karnataka enter Kerala hospital were will Kerala people go if they are not well. If India today is a pluralistic society, much owes to Kerala as people of all faiths first landed in this part of the country that u said like that there are so many states which has got its own infrastructure significance , were people speak all the language including Hindi For your kind information, during Covid-19, Not only Kerala but all the states as well as Indian GOVT has taken very high precaution to ensure safety of all the citizens .What is the use that even if Kerala is the only state which insisted migrants to stay back and the Government is taking care of their needs through community kitchens. When there are no adequate amount of hospitals for patients and they be dependent of other states .The Government itself is Requesting Modi and Amit shah to open the border of Mangalore and Kodagu ,Mysore not only Mangalore. I meant since u said that Keralites are working in Mangalore Hospital .I said there are 10 times Karnataka people who work in hospital it might be doctor Nurse so so .No one will bother even if u said Mangalore is part of Kerala no one cares , businesses in Mangalore thrive only few percentage of Keralites remaining all are Karnataka people .Like that Kannada medium and Kannada sign boards are in Kerala as well .Also in Mumbai more that Keralites in Mangalore . Mangalore business is more in Mumbai , but does that mean its part of Karnataka .

    You take pride in your claim that every 2 in 3 nurses in Karnataka are from Kerala. Actually you should be worried that your nurses, or for that matter any employment seeking youth have to depend on neighboring states or Gulf countries for earning their livelihood.

    3.Even if there is no point blaming anybody now,it is because of the illiterates in the State of 100% literacy has this problem arisen.They have themselves to blame for being Carriers of the Virus and the disdain they showed for quarantine and lock down measures.
    4.Let the CM Vijayan wake up .His 20000 crore budget something has caught the fancy if many....Let it be used to treat the SICK also in his State
    High time ! For its common knowledge that even if some one sneezes in Kasargod or Calicut they come to Mangaluru for treatment !
    Sneeze OK but Stroke ,Attack is a different matter altogether.Hope the point is taken in true spirit.

    First tell your chief minister to develop kasargod, your district has always been neglected by Kerala government, Karnataka has developed belguam despite having good percent of Marathi people, we never saw that our resources will also be beneficial for Marathi people because we know we are Indians first , similarly Kerala government should have developed kasargod instead of blaming Karnataka for this situation, people of Kasargod are not paying any sort of tax for karnataka government , they are paying for Kerala government, they are not paying tax so that they need to be dependent on Mangalore for healthcare. So don't tell these things to Mangaloreans that we don't have humanity, Lose of any life is sad, but lose of more life's would be even worst. When the dam is filled with water, they don't see that some people might get effected if they open the gates, instead they open the gates of the dam and release the water so that the dam doesn't break, because if the entire dam breaks then situation will be more worst.

    Kasargodian - Have you atleast gone through any of the news channel which is showing and giving clear examples of closing borders. First of we are not treating others as outsiders, else Mangaloreans would have shown outsiders the correct mean of an outsider.. We have never done that and the multi lingual communities living in Mangalore is a classic example. This is a pandemic and not limited just to closing borders, its also to self isolate. Do you know if a person is diagonized with covid19 then in cases where he succumbs to this virus his body too will not be given to his immediate relatives for performing ritual ceremonies. This is serious and it would be wise for anyone to follow the instructions provided by WHO, Doctors and Government officials.. which is to self isolate and close borders and i truly appreciate our officials watching out for us and allowing only the basic necessities and milk supply being transported to kerala. What is kerala government doing? Sleeping is it or just sitting there to complain? We should all learn a lesson from other countries like Spain, Iran etc.. and see where we are heading.. Stop blaming and try taking proactive measures..

Absolutely no . He could have gone to kannur because it's lock down any how and going to kannur would probably had any delay . Some people are talking about humanity , Agreed there should be humanity but there will be situation and circumstances all the time . Other time we allow ambulance to come ,but this time people should know the crisis how entire world is facing . It's like giving our house grocery items to our neighbors when we only don't have . Like that if we allow many ambulances at this time and all the hospital are been filled . Then where we mangaloreans should go ??

Agreed there are nurses from kerala but we have 10 times more nurses from mangalore and karnataka than Kerala . It's we mangaloreans have a big heart that's why we encourage all the people's .Suppose like few other states we won't protest for that that's what it's so easy for people like you to tell .There are hospitals built by Karnataka people in other states but eventually those hospital pay tax to that state .Even there are lots of Kannada medium schools till Kerala but does that mean they pay tax to Karnataka govt not but to Kerala govt .And Corona crisis is not only applicable to kasargod . It's impacting all the world . You just. Can't give irresponsible answer Kasargod has not faced this all .Even we can tell Mangalore also have not faced this .When had to allow the ambulance we have allowed . During these time if people of Kerala only come here where we mangaloreans have to go .

    This is the second case happening. After the pregnant case news was everywhere regarding karnataka border being close. Did this ambulance driver just wake up yesterday midnight? Kerala govt instead of trying to put everything on karnataka govt needs to look on this matter in their state. It is already decided border is open only for essential goods then why simply create problems? Remember 2 deaths caused not due to Karnataka police or govt but due to irresponsible Kerala ambulance drivers. Anyway May the deceased soul rest in peace

Please please don`t allow any people / ambulance from Kerala to cross over to Mangalore / Karnataka from Kasargod side. If people / ambulance are allowed , Dakshina Kannada will be in a great danger of Covid 19 from Kerala. Hope Kerala is having very good medical infrastructure.

Is it not concern, humanity or help?? Kerala has highest nurses and many trained in medical fields... So many are working abroad... As Clara said you have international airport too! For what you are waiting for? Come on use empty buildings as emergency hospitals for the time being... How much burden Mangaluru can carry??

    Even after the closing the border why they are trying to enter.Why cant they take patient to nearby hosiptal and save life.Please stop blaming karnataka.I request Government should close the border because most of the corona cases are from kasargod.

    Rest in peace Fathuji amma. Dear resident of kasargod, please ask the concerned officials to convert empty schools/colleges/buildings into temporary hospitals and arrange emergency services instead of thinking of coming to Mangaluru and risking their lives without treatment on time. It's not sufficient only to look into the problems of trucks entering through Mangaluru border... This urgency of protecting people also holds mportant like providing essentials... ..

    There was a plan to start an AIIMS in Kasargod and I understand the foundation stone was also laid . That would have benefited patients from Kasargod and surrounding areas . Wonder what happened to that project ???

    Ambulance driver and the family of the deceased is fully responsible as they decided to take the patient to Mangalure despite knowing that border is closed. Instead they should have treater her in local hospital first.

    If same thing started in Mangalore also then who will take the responsibility? Kasargod has become a corona epicenter , kerala govt should act accordingly and not to push others also in same trouble. DK administration, district incharge ,MP, MLA, Resident what u have done is only to protect ur own family nd this not wrong in any angle . Requesting u all to ensure that nobody can enter Mangalore for treatment otherwise definitely u also going to see Mangalore as like as kasargod. Please save Mangalore

    The borders are only kept open for essential supplies and med supplies only and not for other traffic, be it ambulance carrying patients. This shows the pathetic condition of Kerala run government and the desperate need to enter Mangalore. Please do not open the borders and create another panic situation here in Mangalore.

    The hospitals in mangalore thrive on the patients from kerala. They have earned all their money and earned the tag of a medical destination by promoting the earning from kerala. And now if you leave them in the lurch,that's the failure of the federal system..

    Mangalore is closer to patients from the border. That's why the numbers are driven here ..

    Sanjay - I defer on your baseless opinion stating that Mangalore has thrived and earned on the money from Kerala patients. In fact, the medical institues and colleges here are famous for the strong knowledge and impartial growth given by our system to anyone who has come seeking education from different parts of India. It is the hapless and sham system of other state governments like kerala to not have the basic amentities such as hospitals to take care of its people. Think through properly its actually the other way around that we mangaloreans are open and have always given priority to everyone be it medical or any other profession ans opened the border for transport of essential items. Now the borders are closed for a reason; only allowing essential goods and med supplies which the learned people in both karnataka and kerala have thought to best and agreed to. Just assume if your neighbor is suffering from Covid19.. what would you do? Invite them inside ur house and give them medication or maintain social distancing and call the authorities to take care and right action.

    Kasargodian - Good finally you realize that kerala needs to improve its medical infrastructure. By this way atleast you people can instil common sense in your government that basic medical facilities are essential. Hope your opinion is counted for in Kerala.. wish you all the best and by the way Mangalore people are self sustained and I again reiterate to people like you that rather than just blaming us and telling us that Mangalore hospitals thrive on your earnings.. you guys should just invest the same thing in places like kasargod which needs such basic amenities.

    Angel - The decision to close the border is made after a huge panel discussion and to open the same was also made by the same only for essential goods supply too is madeby the same panel. Please read the accurate news and not whatsapp university news. The disclaimer of border being closed has been circulated to all bordering districts of karnataka by the kerala state government
