Muhammed revealed that the medical doctor refused to allow himself to be treated and thus exposed his family to the deadly virus.

The BSPHCDA boss said: ”The doctor and nine of his family members were recently discharged but the last child, the 9-year son is still in isolation.

“When the doctor got infected, instead of allowing other doctors to take care of him, he went home with it. He ought to have placed himself on a sick role and allow others to treat him…””
