The minister would meet with administrators of all private hospitals and nursing homes in the national capital at 7.00 p.m., a Delhi government statement said.

Earlier during the day, Jain made a surprise visit to Acharya Shree Bhikshu Hospital in Moti Nagar to check preparedness for tackling dengue, officials said.

Six-year-old Aman died due to alleged dengue complications on September 13 night after hospitals denied him admission, his family members said on Tuesday.

Earlier, an Odisha couple whose seven-year-old son Avinash Rout died of dengue committed suicide by jumping from the fourth floor of a building.

The boy was allegedly denied admission by five hospitals - Moolchand Hospital, Aakash Hospital, Saket City Hospital, Max Hospital (Saket) and Irene Hospital (Kalkaji).
