Ronaldo's father ends hunger strike

The strike, which began two days ago, ended after the St John’s Hospital assured to bear the expenses of the child, even if he is taken to any other hospital for treatment. Kiran Chander said he was planning to visit other hospitals and inquire about his son’s treatment.

Dr George D’Souza, the hospital’s medical superintendent, confirmed this and said, “We wanted to close this issue at the moment. Hence, we have agreed to bear the cost of the patient’s treatment.” He said the patient’s father wanted to go to another hospital to close the tracheotomy opening.

Ronaldo was brought to the hospital with 10 per cent burns in March. He suffered respiratory depression after he was administered sedative. He was shifted to paediatric ICU where he was put on ventilator.
