Inside hours of his incineration, his family gotten a call expressing that he was progressing nicely and that his condition was steady. Another call from the order and control focus running from the Civil Hospital grounds educated them the equivalent following day also.

When I reached there along with my elder sister-in-law, we were shown a body that was packed as per Covid protocol as he was a suspected case and his report was pending. We did not see his face. The bag of clothes and other things I handed over to him at the time of admission was also with him, so I believed that he was my father-in-law,” said Nilesh Nikte (40), Devrambhai’s son-in-law who lives in Noblenagar.
