Two private hospitals, which charge high bills for the treatment of Corona patients, returned the money even before the complaint reached the Municipal Corporation. Both these hospitals are located on Ring Road of Central Zone. Out of these, one hospital returned 20 thousand and the other 7500 rupees.
In view of the shortage of beds in government hospitals during Corona, the Municipality had tied up with private hospitals. Bills ranging from 1 lakh to 52 lakh rupees were made for the treatment of corona patients from some private hospitals. According to the agreement, these hospitals were to provide treatment at an affordable rate, but seeing the opportunity in the disaster, they looted the patients as much as they could.
