And he was on bed they was not able to stand his on his legs then the volunteers arrange the ambulance of KCH and admit to hospital On enquiry he told them that he was a cured TB patient. But his family members kept him apart and refused to take him to a hospital saying their medicine was no good. He was not allowed to speak to his grandchildren and relatives kept away because of his condition. His sputum was collected and it tested positive.
