Another child dies of dengue in Delhi after hospitals refuse treatment

New Delhi, Sep 15 (ANI): After the shocking incident of a child's parents committing suicide post their son's death because of dengue came to light in Delhi, another child was reported dead due to dengue. A five-year-old child, Aman, died in the Srinivaspuri area of South Delhi, after succumbing to dengue as the hospitals where he was taken by his parents refused to treat him citing shortage of beds.

The deceased's parents blamed the hospital authorities for the negligence. The national capital has reported 1,714 confirmed dengue cases this season having crossed the 2010 dengue breakout, which stood at 1,695.

In wake of the rising cases of dengue in the national capital, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain visited more hospitals in the state. The Central Government has also asked the Delhi Government to increase the bed strength in the hospitals and to initiate action against the private hospitals, which are over charging the patients.
