“We have received the court order and are checking the legalities as it said as per the hospital protocol, the family will be allowed to meet Mr. Rao who is a Covid-19 patient. Again he was in jail. Once we get legal clarity, we will inform Rao's family about the visiting time,” said a senior official of the hospital requesting anonymity.
