Health Minister replied-

Even Fortis replied on Twitter-

 

Reports said that hospital had refused to give 7 year old, Adya a death certificate. They asked parents to arrange another hospital’s ambulance to take her back. Because Fortis hospital didn’t want to take a dengue death on their hands.

No one has the right to play with the sentiments and health of the people. And it is not the right way that how hospitals are treating their patients, just for the sake of business.
