Amarpreet’s father’s death due to COVID-19 has stirred many questions.

Amarpreet did all that she could to save her father’s life. But she alleges they were let down first by Gangaram Hospital and then by the Delhi govt run LNJP.

On 4 June, she tweeted, “My dad is running high fever. We need to shift him to hospital. I am standing outside LNJP Delhi and they are not taking him in. He is having corona, high fever and breathing problem. He won't survive without help. Pls help.”

Barely an hour later, she tweeted,

“He is no more. The govt failed us.”
