A man who was prevented from seeing his relative under coronavirus quarantine in a hospital in Istanbul stabbed a security guard.

The man, whose identity wasn’t disclosed, wanted to see his relative in the Süreyyapaşa Hospital in Istanbul’s Maltepe district when a security guard told him that it’s not allowed.

The man then went onto stab the guard.

“We experienced a saddening incident today. The patient’s relative was told that he can’t see the patient and that this decision was announced by the ministry. Unfortunately, this person stabbed a friend of ours,” a hospital official said, adding that the security guard underwent surgery.
