Bengaluru, June 22 (IANS) The Bengaluru Police on Monday put a ban on the photographing and video recording of the COVID-19 patients when they are being taken to a hospital.

The step has been taken following the complaints of many patients, who feel such acts violate their privacy, a top police official said.

“When a Covid patient is taken to hospital, the bystanders take photos on their mobile and television channels also air. No photography without consent,” said Police Commissioner Bhaskar Rao.

Rao said capturing images and videos of the Covid positive patients is resulting in the invasion of their privacy and some patients have complained.

“Privacy invaded and they complained that they feel humiliated,” he said.

The police commissioner has ordered his officers to ensure privacy.

“I have instructed my officers to ensure privacy or take legal action,” added Rao.
