Boy succumbs to fever

The boy’s condition was critical when he was admitted at the hospital and was immediately put on ventilator. Due to financial constraints the parents took away the patient on Sunday morning.

According to the Hospital, the patient was first admitted at Lady Curzon and Bowring Hospital and later taken to several hospitals, where he was refused admission, before getting admitted here.

Dr Anees, the Hospital’s Chief Medical Officer said, “The patient was diagnosed with viral haemorrhagic fever and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and his Dengue test results came negative. In fact, we informed the parents about the patient’s condition and gave them the option to shift him to another hospital, as his condition was not improving,” he added.
