When Girgaum resident Jitendra Atre (54) tested positive for Covid-19 on the morning of May 11, his family assumed the civic body would take charge. The ground reality was different though. While they found a bed at B Y L Nair Hospital a few hours later, they couldn’t get an ambulance till 9pm. That’s around the same time Atre breathed his last. The family said they were redirected to others when they called the 1916 helpline, and more than 50 calls to the local ward office landline went unanswered.
