DEHRADUN: A day after reports that the Covid care centre run at the Doodadhari Burfani Hospital in Haridwar had hidden the deaths of 65 patients between April 25 and May 12, kin narrated horrifying stories about what they went through.
Brijesh Kumar, whose wife lost her life at the centre on May 3, told  IM on Sunday that he was shocked when he saw her body lying on the floor of the hospital where he had admitted her barely 24 hours ago.
“She was not given even a single medicine. Her file that we got from the hospital was blank with no treatment details. When I fought with the hospital staff to know about her condition and subsequently barged into the Covid ward when I did not get a response, I found her body on the floor,” Kumar said, sobbing.
A similar story was shared by Tushar Sharma, who lost his uncle Som Dutt Sharma at the centre. “My uncle died on May 3 but nobody from the centre informed us. Even the doctors were not aware that he had died. We kept asking about his condition but they were unable to respond to our queries. Finally, we entered the ward after a heated argument with the staff only to find him dead,” Sharma said.
