The ongoing Coronavirus has highlighted how people behave inhumanly. So far, several such incidents were reported in India. Another incident has joined the list which questions the humanity in people.

In a heart-warming incident, a woman was forced to die on the road, after the authorities of a private hospital reportedly demanded that they take only cash as fees and they don't accept online transactions.

With the hospital management reportedly demanding the kin of the woman to deposit only cash as the fees, the relatives of the old woman had run like crazy on the road in search of the ATM facility.

The shocking incident was reported in Srikakulam of Andhra Pradesh. The Hospital management reportedly insisted on the family members of the woman, who had tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

The hospital management allegedly refused to admit the woman, till her family members paid a sum of Rs 60,000 in advance in cash.  When her relatives returned, they were shocked to see the woman with no movement.

When the woman breathed her last, the autorickshaw driver left the body of the woman. The family members of the woman even faced issues with shifting her body to the burial ground.

The family members of the woman alleged that the police personnel and municipal officials didn't help them despite being on the spot. Seeing their difficulties, a local news channel reporter helped the family in shifting the body wearing a PPE kit.
