Just ignorance and carelessness dwara ivala Covid situation intha worse ga tayyaru aindi. Rojuki record staayi lo cases and thelikundane disappear aipothunna pranalu. Andaru corona meedha chetulu yettesina kontha mandi matram pranalu lekka cheyyakunda mundhuki vachi help chestunnaru. Ivala meeru chudaboyedi kuda alanti oka vyakthi kathane…
Mumbai-resident Shahnawaz Shaikh sold his ₹22-lakh SUV to buy and distribute oxygen cylinders for free. So far, he has handed them out to over 250 families suffering with coronavirus.
He bought a brand-new Ford Endeavour back in 2011, he spent additional money to get a special number plate – 007, as well as a customised music system.
Shahnawaz Shaikh said, “The woman’s husband took her to five hospitals but none was willing to admit her. Some said they didn’t have any vacant beds for people with Covid-19 symptoms. Others didn’t have ventilators. She died in an autorickshaw outside the sixth hospital.”
After speaking to doctors, Shahnawaz learnt that her life could have been saved if she had received oxygen in time. This encouraged the youngster to help those in need. Upon researching, he came to know that there was a shortage of oxygen cylinders in the market and decided to sell his SUV to raise money for it.
“Seeing the situation of hospitals across the city, we have decided to provide oxygen cylinders to whoever is in urgent need of them. We are not disseminating on the basis poor or rich, Hindu, or Muslim. Whoever is coming to us with a doctor’s prescription, we simply deliver the oxygen cylinder to them anywhere in Mumbai.”
