You can take up this matter to Labour Commissioner against the hotel management for their mismanagement and negligence and not followed the due hygienic care of their staff and not provided any medical treatment to his employee being affected by Covid . Also instead of sending him for isolation got the service from him in such covid positive condition and died in Hotel. You can claim for compensation against the Hotel Management .

He is not benefited for the accident death benefits for the death due to covid. However since he is reported to have died in harness, he is entitled to the death/terminal benefits from the management of his firm/organisation as per law.
