Questions are being raised about the treatment of patients other than Covid positive in Kolkata hospital .

Witness to his son's death Gopal's father , Bhutnath Mandal, an octogenarian passed away due to hear attack on the same day. Resident of Dhara Para , Gopal Mandal hanged himself on Sunday morning after he was sent home, despite severe pain on his amputated leg, from Vidyasagar State General Hospital due to lack of orthopaedic doctors.

Talking to the reporters Mandal's brother Subhar said," He met with an accident 35years ago and his leg was amputated then. For the past few days he was suffering from severe pain on the same leg. We took him to Vidya Sagar Hospital and they gave him injection and kept him admitted for an hour saying the orthopaedic surgeon would arrive any moment. After several hours they informed the unavailability of doctors. They urged us to admit him to another hospital."

By the time the hospital authorities failed to provide and orthopaedic Gopal Mandal had already started to squirm in pain.
"In our current financial condition it was impossible for us to shift to a private hospital. Notable hospitals are not admitting patients after they have specified for Corona treatment," added Gopal Mandal's aggrieved wife.

Despite repeated warning , private and public Kolkata hospitals refuse to admit patients due to Corona pandemic.
