Sonu Sood facilitates airlift for critical Covid patient from Nagpur to Hyderabad

Mumbai: Actor Sonu Sood has once again emerged as the real life hero that the country needs in this hour of need. After being done with arranging oxygen cylinders and medical equipment, the actor has now arranged for a 25-year-old critically ill Covid patient to be airlifted in an air-ambulance from Nagpur to Hyderabad for treatment.

The patient named Bharti is the daughter of a retired railway officer, and she has reportedly lost almost 85 to 90 per cent of her lungs owing to Covid-19. The actor had initially helped the family in shifting her to a private hospital in Nagpur. Doctors then suggested she needed a lung transplant.

The actor arranged for the patient to be airlifted to Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad, for a treatment called ECMO, in which blood is artificially pumped into the body to take pressure away from the lungs.

“Doctors said the chances are 20 per cent, and asked me if I still wanted to go ahead with it. I said ‘of course’. She is a 25-year-old young girl and will fight the battle hard and come out of it stronger. That’s why we took this chance and decided to get an air ambulance. The treatment is going well in and we hope for the best,” said Sonu.

Meanwhile, the actor took to Instagram on Friday afternoon to inform that he has tested negative for Covid-19. The actor had informed about testing positive for the virus on Saturday.
