Bengaluru: Former Chief Minister H.D Kumaraswamy was diagnosed with Corona on Saturday, but as he approached a private hospital in Bengaluru for treatment, he was allegedly told that there were no beds available in the hospital, it is learned.
Health Minister Sudhakar who received information about this tried to procure a bed for Kumaraswamy in the Manipal Hospital but seemingly failed to get one. Subsequently, Kumaraswamy contacted another private hospital and was able to get a bed there, it is learned.
However, due to his imminent attendance at the court concerning a case, Kumaraswamy did not admit himself to the hospital despite getting a bed. But, in the background of his contracting corona, it is learned that he will not be able to attend the court hearing in person. Therefore, Kumaraswamy has reportedly decided to attend the court hearing via video conference.
Vidhana Parishad Member, H.M Rameshgowda informed that Kumaraswamy would get admitted to the hospital for his treatment after attending the scheduled court hearing.
H.D Kumaraswamy's son Nikhil Kumaraswamy who is a Kannada actor and JD (S) youth wing President said in a tweet he too has tested positive and is under medication on the advice of the doctors.
Kumaraswamy's wife and Ramanagara MLA Anita Kumaraswamy is under home quarantine on the advice of the Doctors.
