A video showing a cow inside the intensive care unit (ICU) of a hospital in the Rajgarh district of Madhya Pradesh took social media by storm on Friday.
In the video that went viral, a cow can be seen roaming freely and eating medical waste from the garbage bins present on the hospital premises. Notably, the incident took place in the presence of the security staff and two cow catchers who were employed by the hospital to prevent such a situation.
A cow reached the ICU of the Government Hospital in Rajgarh (MP) to inquire about the condition of the patients. There was no time left for well-being, before she could ask anything, the patient’s family members chased her away.

Talking about the incident, Dr. Rajendra Kataria, Civil Surgeon of the District Hospital was quoted saying by news agency ANI, “I have taken notice of the situation and have taken action against the ward boy and security guard. This incident is from our old COVID ICU ward."
