Hyderabad: At a time when Andhra Pradesh is witnessing alarming cases of viral fever and hospitals are flooded with patients, wheelchairs are being used to dispose and transport garbage. The shocking visuals are reported from Ruia government hospital in Tirupati district.

When confronted, the staff said, "The hospital administration did not provide any trolley to transport garbage from dustbins to dumping points. How will we remove garbage? There is no alternative option given to us by the hospital administration".
