It was 31 August, when a seven-year-old girl Adya was brought to Fortis Memorial Institute in Gurugram for treatment. The child suffering Dengue Shock Syndrome was admitted there for the next 14 days. On 14 September, an MRI of the child revealed extensive damage to the brain and the doctors gave up.
The parents were asked to arrange for a private ambulance since she was leaving against medical advice. She died soon after. The family footed a bill of Rs 16 lakh for the treatment.
