With the rising numbers of COVID cases in the country, it feels like there’s no end to people's miseries.  

People are dying because there’s a shortage of oxygen in hospitals and the visuals are terrifying. And this has led to countless deaths, as social media is full of stories of such cases.

Sutapa Sikdar, the wife of late actor Irrfan Khan, expressed deep sorrow over the death of a relative named Sameer Banerjee who passed away due to COVID-19 and called out authorities over shortage of ICU beds in the national capital.

The novel pandemic has been claiming lives rapidly in the second wave as well and the lack of facilities proves that both central and most state governments have been failing terribly. 

Sikdar took to Facebook to pen down the emotional turmoil she underwent after her friend's death. She mentioned that it wasn't an obituary and urged people to not forget the pain caused by the second wave of the novel Coronavirus.

Her post read as “#notanobituary #don’tforget I posted day before for help for my relative Sameer Banerjee. Today he left us. We couldn't set up an ICU at home in Delhi the capital of India. And we couldn’t get a bed in the hospital. My gratitude to all the COVID-91 warriors who helped. I will never forget you all, my blessings to you all till I live, I will never forget Sameerda’s smile. I will cherish my adolescent memories with him. I will never forget that I couldn’t get a bed in ICU for him because he was not Chota Rajan. He was an honest man. I will not forget this mayhem in Delhi. You don’t forget too that Banerjees, Sheikhs, Das Adjanias all have to go and they could have stayed with us all a bit longer if we would have concentrated as a country more on hospital oxygen plants than Hindu festivals and Muslim festivals. #delhigovt #modi #bettertobeachotarajan #dontforget."

For those who aren’t aware, Chhota Rajan had tested positive for COVID-19 in April and was admitted to the New Delhi-based All India Institute of Medical Services (AIIMS). 

It’s sad that people have to go so much just for the bare minimum and all this helplessness is making people lose hope completely because there’s no immediate relief in near sight.

Meanwhile, Sikdar has been using her social media account to seek medical help for many people in her circle.

On Monday, India reported 3.68 lakh fresh cases and 3,417 deaths. On the other hand, Delhi on Sunday reported 20,394 new cases and 407 fatalities.

MensXP prays for everyone who has been dealing with personal losses.
