Samyuktha Hegde recently took to Instagram to share a heartwrenching post about her parents testing covid-19 positive and that she is on the lookout for Remdesivir for her father. In a recent interview, she revealed that felt helpless when she couldn't find a hospital bed for her ailing father.
In an interview with a leading entertainment portal, Samyuktha said, "My parents tested positive and while my mother is recouping, my father had breathing issues that required his oxygen levels to be monitored. Currently, I’m single-handedly looking after them. My brother has been trying to help, but we don’t want him also to be exposed. After spending a few hours in the ambulance we were sent back as there were no beds available, even though they had confirmed availability earlier. By then, even the oxygen in the ambulance was nearly over. What have we come to? The injections I was seeking are going at triple the usual price in the black market. People are hoarding essential medicines and trying to make a quick buck at this crucial hour. Who is to question them? Every helpline I call is either switched off or invalid or perpetually busy. And the less said the better about finding hospital beds."
