He himself tested positive, he called up Shashtri Nagar hospital in Dombivli for an ambulance, in response hospital staff said to him that there is no ambulance available. So, the patient decided to walk the hospital asked the commissioner he said he has pressed 33 ambulances in service. He said he has ordered the officials to inquire about what actually happened in the case so that the appropriate action will be taken.
