A heart-wrenching video of a 34-year old man in Hyderabad is being widely circulated on social media. The video was recorded by a man who died due to COVID-19.
The man was admitted to a govt hospital where the video was shot and his last words in the video were:
“Am not able to breathe… Though I pleaded, they did not continue oxygen for the last three hours. I am not able to breathe any more daddy, it’s like my heart has stopped…Bye daddy…”
Since the video went viral it has been making rounds on social media highlighting the troubles COVID patients are going through.
The patient was refused by 10 hospitals for admitting him and finally was admitted by Hyderabad Government Chest hospital.

The father told NDTV that his son was asking for help but the hospital people did not help him.
“…Why was my son denied oxygen? Did anyone else need it urgently and so they took it away from him? When I hear that video of my son, my heart breaks,”
However, the hospital superintendent has denied the allegations saying:
“The conditions to provide ventilator support are different. The patient should be in a completely unresponsive state. But in this case, the man had a heart ailment. We had given him oxygen support, but this heart issue led to his sudden collapse,”
