Two year old raped in South Africa isolation Center
A two-year-old girl has allegedly been raped while in a coronavirus isolation ward at a hospital in South Africa.

The alleged incident happened at the Dr. George Mukhari Academic Hospital in Pretoria, DailyMail reports.

The toddler’s aunt, who chose to remain anonymous to protect the identity of the child, said the girl was sexually abused while admitted at the hospital.

She said the hospital told to the child’s mother that her daughter needed to be placed on an isolation ward after she developed symptoms of COVID-19.

After the victim’s mother went home, she was contacted later that evening that her child was crying and appeared to be in serious pain.

The aunt said after the child had been picked up from the hospital, she appeared to be struggling to walk.

Narrating the ordeal, the aunt told News24;

The mother and child were referred to the George Mukhari Hospital by the KT Motubatse clinic in Soshanguve on June 15.

The hospital called in the evening and told the mother that the child was crying and in pain. They later called around 11pm and said the child was now sleeping.

The hospital staff called again in the morning and told my sister to come and pick up her child because she had been discharged. The hospital said the child had tested negative for Covid-19. I saw that there was something wrong with the child. As the mother was changing the nappy, she discovered some white fluid on her private parts.

She initially thought it was medication as the child had been in hospital. But the following day, that same whitish fluid was still coming out.

The girl was taken back to the hospital where a nurse reportedly confirmed that there was an indication that the child had been raped at the isolation ward.

Provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Mathapelo Peters said a rape case has been opened.

The hospital is also conducting its own investigation into the incident.
