In an appalling case of negligence in Gujarat, family members of a Covid-19 patient were led to believe that he had succumbed to the infection when the patient's health is improving. They were handed the corpse of a Covid-19 patient and told that it was the body of Devrambhai Bhisikar. The family did not unseal the body bag and it was only after they had cremated the body that they were informed that he was responding to the treatment.
