Mandeep Singh's 68 year old father in law died outside LNJP Hospital in Delhi

On June 1, Mandeep's 67-year-old father-in-law (a high-risk patient who was also asthmatic) tested positive for COVID19. They called several hospitals including Max, Apollo, AIIMS, Safdurjung — all the hospitals directed them not to come as they did not have beds. With nowhere to go, they called Delhi government helpline number but couldn't reach them as the number was always busy.
On June 3, when the situation worsened, they went to LNJP hospital where doctors initially refused to admit him as he has tested in Gangaram hospital and advised them to take the patient back to Gangaram hospital where there were no beds available for COVID19 patients. However, on further insistence, one doctor did attend him but by that time the patient's health had already deteriorated badly and couldn't survive.
