Indore: Many people in the city, whose family members have died due to COVID, are running from pillar to post to get certificates to prove the same as it is not mentioned in the death certificate issued by the government hospital or by the Indore Municipal Corporation.

Following the government's annoncement of paying ex gratia of Rs 1 lakh following a Covid demise, people have started making a beeline to get proof.


“My dad was a Covid victim and I got his death certificate from MY Hospital. No where was it mentioned that he died due to COVID-19 and I am running helter skelter to get the certificate as a proof to substantiate the fact that he was a Covid victim,” Sapna Joshi said.


Similarly, many people are also reaching government and private hospitals along with Indore Municipal Corporation to get the certificate or the death summary to prove that their near and dear ones were snatched by the C-virus.

“They can collect the death summary of the patient by applying for the same at MY Hospital,” Dr Thakur added.
