Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday (29 June) announced an ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore for the family of a senior doctor of the city government-run LNJP Hospital who died battling COVID-19.

The 52-year-old doctor served in the front line of the war against the pandemic at the government facility and died of novel coronavirus infection in an ICU of a private hospital on Sunday (28 June).

"Dr. Aseem Gupta was a senior doctor and was serving COVID patients for the last few months with his duty being in the ICU. His colleagues speak about the dedication and commitment with which he served patients," Kejriwal said in an online press briefing.

"It is because of people like him that we have been able to fight COVID-19. He is a big inspiration to us and we bow to his spirit of service to humanity. As a mark of honor, Delhi government will offer an ex-gratia of Rs 1 crore to the family of Dr. Gupta," he said.

The chief minister also said that this is a small amount and someone's life is priceless. The amount will be given by the government on behalf of the country, and the people of Delhi, for the services rendered by the doctor, he said.

We doctors keep fighting all kinds of pandemics and epidemics and even our family members are involved in it but we don' t get the privilege of what military people are getting during their whole service. Do we ????? This is the time to salute doctors , nurses , lab. technicians and other supportive workers. Please do not dilute the serenity.
