Maharashtra: Two Covid deaths within 10 days, Nalasopara family counts its losses
Until a few weeks back, Nalasopara-based Shaikhs were one happy household, making plans for a wedding in the family. But things took a turn for the worse towards the end of April when three sisters in the family started showing symptoms of Covid-19. What followed was a hectic scramble for a hospital bed, key drugs like remdesivir and tocilizumab, ventilator, and a huge sum of money for treatment. However, it all came to naught with two sisters succumbing to the infection one after the other, and the third still in a severely ill condition.
