COVID19 death

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal got tested for COVID-19 on Tuesday and got the test result the same day, a Delhi resident had to wait for three days to get his father’s body from Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital because his coronavirus report was awaited. Harsh Verma’s father died on June 6 but he received the dead body on June 9, that too after he used some other sources to get COVID-19 test reports.

Moreover, he claimed that his father died because of the negligence of hospitals that refused to treat him for various reasons.

“My father was having breathing problem and a local doctor suggested getting tested for COVID-19 on June 5. We took him to Acharya Shree Bhikshu Hospital. We asked them to get him tested for coronavirus infection but they insisted that he is not having symptoms. They gave some medicines and asked us to go home,” Verma told Health Wire over the phone.

He then took his father to BL Kapoor which admitted him in the ICU. “We asked them to get him admitted in COVID-19 ward but they refused saying we don’t have any bed. However, the ‘Delhi Corona’ app showed that the beds are vacant at the hospital,” said Verma.

They took the patient to LNJP hospital on June 6. After a lot of requests, the son somehow managed to get his father admitted but treatment started only after half-an-hour.

“They provided some medicines and we provided an ambulance so that he can be shifted to the corona ward. The most shocking thing was that there were already four coronavirus patients in the ambulance,” he said.

“As my father was unable to walk properly, I took him to Ward No. 27. There was not even a proper toilet facility in the ward. He kept on complaining that he is having breathing problems. I kept on requesting nurses and doctors to check my father. When I requested a doctor to check my father in person, he said he is wearing PPE kit. No one came for one hour and my father passed away. I want to know who takes an hour to wear a PPE kit,” he said.

His sufferings didn’t stop there as the son had to wait for 3 days to receive the dead body. “We had to run from pillar to post to get the report and that too by the help of people who had some internal connections,” he said.

Moreover, no government official has approached the family to test them for COVID-19. They tried to request for the test through government helpline number but are yet to receive any update.
