Sushmita Sen is an avid social media user and unlike every other celebrity at times even she is mocked. But, she knows how to handle trolls and unnecessary comments that land upon her profile.
Amid the rising coronavirus cases, Delhi has taken a major hit since the past few days and the dwindling medical supplies have spread concerns amongst the masses. Luckily, Sen was able to organise a few oxygen cylinders for Delhi's Shanti Mukand Hospital but was unable to send them over from Mumbai.
Sharing a video of the hospital's CEO breaking down on camera at the lack of oxygen in his hospital. “This is deeply heart breaking...oxygen crisis is everywhere. I have managed to organise a few oxygen cylinders for this hospital but have no way to transport it to Delhi from Mumbai...please help me find a way", said Sushmita as she replied to the video.
In the video, Sunil Saggar said, "We're hardly left with any oxygen. We've requested doctors to discharge patients, whoever can be discharged...It may last for 2 hrs or something."
While numerous fans shared various options over her tweet, a troll criticized her for sending oxygen to Delhi while Mumbai needs it still. "If Oxygen Crisis is everywhere why are you sending it to Delhi instead of giving it to some similar hospital in Mumbai," the troll wrote.
Sushmita replied, "Because Mumbai still has oxygen cylinders available, that’s how I found it. Delhi needs it, especially these smaller hospitals, so help if you can."
Later, she updated her fans that the hospital has received oxygen cylinders from somewhere else. “The said hospital has oxygen organised for now!!! It gives us more time to send the cylinders!! Thank you all soooooo much for helping create awareness & support!! deeply grateful!!! Stay good hearted...it suits you”, wrote Sushmita Sen.
India has witnessed an unprecedented spike in the coronavirus cases and the nation is struggling to maintain its crumbling healthcare system. With lakhs of people getting infected daily and thousands of new deaths, hospitals are running out of medical supplies.
