A Mumbai doctor suffering from COVID-19 died hours after she wrote a parting message on Facebook saying that this could be her last post on social media. Manisha Jadhav wrote on Facebook, “May be last Good Morning. I may not meet you here on this plateform. Take care all. Body die. Soul doesn’t. Soul is immortal.”
Aged 51, Jadhav’s post has now gone viral on social media, leaving netizens stunned. This has further reinforced the fear over the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic, which is wreaking havoc across India.
Filmmaker Ashok Pandit wrote on Twitter, “Losing #Doctors like #ManishaJadhav to #COVID is very painful and sad. It sends shivers down your spine. My salute and respect to these front line warriors who sacrifice their lives so that we are alive.” One Twitetr user wrote, “Heart-Wrenching story. 51 years old Mumbai Dr. Manisha Jadhav died from Covid around 36 hours after posting her last post on facebook. She posted a very emotional post on Fb.” Another user wrote, “Lost on the Frontline. Dr Manisha Jadhav was the Chief Medical Officer at Sewri TB Hospital. She died hours after posting her ‘Final Goodbye’ on Facebook.”
Thank you doc. May your soul rest in peace.
This came after a video of another Mumbai-based doctor, Trupti Gilada, went viral. In the video, Dr. Gilada was seen breaking down while expressing her fears about the pandemic. She was heard saying in the video, “The situation in Mumbai is so bad that ICUs are in waiting and there are no beds for patients.”
She went on to add, “I have never felt this helpless and hopeless before… we have to literally manage patients at home with oxygen and this is not something we are enjoying.”
Meanwhile, the Delhi High Court on Wednesday reprimanded the central government for the shortages in oxygen supply as several hospitals said in the national capital said that they would run out of oxygen within hours.
