New Delhi: A newborn died allegedly due to the unavailability of ventilators at a government hospital here after which angry relatives confined a nurse to a room for some time, hospital sources said.

They said the baby was born prematurely at the Delhi government-run hospital in Malviya Nagar on Thursday and had to be referred to a central government-run hospital in Lutyens’ Delhi as the previous facility lacked ventilators.

The baby died at the central government-run hospital hours later, following which angry relatives of the newborn confined the nurse of the state-run facility to a room for some time.

A police officer said a team was sent to the hospital following PCR calls over the alleged confinement of the healthcare worker.
