Sad story of Hyderabad's Covid patient whose video is going viral

Monday, June 29, 2020 • Telugu Comments

The video of a 35-year-old Covid-19 patient by name Ravi Kumar, who is now dead, is going viral on the Internet. He was undergoing treatment at the Government Chest Hospital in Erragadda when he shot a selfie video of himself and sent it to his family just minutes before his death. What he is heard saying in the video is shocking and heart-rending. The patient says that the oxygen supply was stopped to him three hours before even though he pleaded with the doctors that he was unable to breathe.

"They removed the ventilator three hours back. I feel like my heart is not beating anymore. All I can do is just breathe. Bye daddy, bye everyone," Ravi Kumar says.

Reports inform that the patient was admitted to the Chest Hospital in Hyderabad on June 24 at 6 pm and two days later, he breathed his last.

Ravi Kumar's father has told a media house that they had a tough time in getting the test done. They moved from a private hospital to a branch of a famous diagnostics chain in Kharkhana to another branch of the same chain in Moosapet to get the test done. After the test came positive, the family had to keep moving from one hospital to another, requesting for Ravi Kumar to be admitted. All the while, Ravi Kumar was gasping for oxygen as more than a dozen hospitals refused to admit him.
