INDIA Team Latestly|

Doctors at a Delhi hospital were attacked on April 27 morning by the attendants of a woman, 67, who died in the emergency ward as the hospital had no ICU beds available. An unspecified number of hospital staff, including doctors, were injured in the clash outside Apollo Hospital, which took place between 8 & 10 am. The police arrived an hour later, reported NDTV. Hospital authorities told ANI the "attendant got violent after the patient died... it usually happens when someone dies" & that the situation was brought under control after the police arrived. Shocking visuals of the incident show a group of men fighting just inside the hospital gates. Delhi, like other parts of the country, is battling a devastating wave of Covid-19 infections that has brought the city's health infrastructure to its knees. Hospital beds, medication & oxygen supplies are at a premium, with people forced to rely on social media for aid or, worse, camp on the streets with critically ill relatives and hope for help.
