Actor-YouTuber Rahul Vohra dies of Covid-19 a day after making heartbreaking post on Facebook
New Delhi/IBNS: Actor-YouTuber Rahul Vohra died of Covid-19 in a Delhi hospital on Sunday a day after making a heartbreaking post on Facebook for better treatment.
The 35-year-old actor in the post on Saturday wrote that he would have survived had he received better treatment.
"Mujhe bhi treatment achha mil jaata to main bhi bach jaata (I would have lived had I received better treatment)," he wrote, adding details of which hospital he was in.
He tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi Manish Sisodia. "Jald janam lunga aur achha kaam karunga, ab himmat haar chuka hu (I will be reborn soon and do good work, have lost my courage now)," Rahul wrote.
He succumbed to the virus a day later at Rajiv Gandhi Hospital to Ayushman, Dwarka.
"Rahul Vohra is gone. My promising actor is no more. Yesterday Rahul had said that 'Had I got good treatment, I would have been saved too.' Yesterday evening he was shifted from Rajiv Gandhi Hospital to Ayushman, Dwarka, but... Rahul we all could not save you, sorry we are your culprits. Last bow..," his friend and theatre director-playwright Arvind Gaur wrote in his own Facebook page.
Rahul was in the hospital for over a week and on May 4, he shared a post on Facebook in which he wrote that he had been taken to hospital four days earlier after testing positive for COVID.
He wrote despairingly of needing oxygen; "where can I get an oxygen bed?" he asked, "Main bahut majboor hokar yeh post kar raha hu (I am writing this post out of desperation)," he wrote.
Delhi has probably been the worst-hit of the second wave of Covid-19 with cases skyrocketing and pressurising hospitals to struggle with a shortage of oxygen, beds and medicines while desperate patients lost their loved ones on roads in dearth of proper treatment.
