Another boy has died of dengue with his family claiming negligence by hospitals in Delhi City where only last week seven-year-old Avinash had succumbed to the disease after allegedly being turned away by five hospitals which had driven his parents to suicide. Aman, 6, from Srinivaspuri area of South Delhi has become the tenth victim of dengue this season. According to Aman’s father Manoj Sharma, he was diagnosed with dengue at a private hospital in Srinivaspuri and was then taken to Safdarjung Hospital on September 9. “The doctors at Safdarjung hospital said that our boy does not have dengue and thus there is no need of getting him admitted. Also, at that point of time, our son’s condition was a bit stable so we brought him home. “But on Friday his condition worsened and we took him to Jeewan hospital in Maharani Bagh where he was admitted till Saturday night. “At 2.30 AM the doctors there told us that his condition was critical and they do not have the equipment to handle such cases and thus we should shift him to a bigger hospital,” said Aman’s father.
