New Delhi:

Stories of people helping out others against all odds continue to come from the national capital and elsewhere across the country amid the deadly second wave of COVID-19.

An assistant sub-inspector of the Delhi Police received praise on social media for stepping up to help the family of a man who died of COVID-19.

Sonu, 35, a resident of north-east Delhi’s Gokulpuri, died due to complications from coronavirus infection. However, the family couldn’t take the body to the crematorium fearing Covid infection, the Delhi Police tweeted.

The assistant sub-inspector, Sushil, met the family and agreed to take the body for last rites. Before that, the policeman hired a private ambulance and took the body to a hospital for autopsy.

“ASI Sushil of PS Gokulpuri NE Dist  #DelhiPolice took body of 35yr-old Sonu suffering for 3-4 days to hospital for post mortem in pvt Amb & later to Ashok Nagar crematorium for last rites when his family members didn’t come forward fearing #covid. One of your #DilKiPolice #Heros,” the Delhi Police tweeted, along with a photo of the policeman.

Hospitals in Delhi have been sending out SOS for oxygen refill, with many claiming they have oxygen to last only a few hours. The healthcare infrastructure in the national capital and other towns and cities across the nation is severely strained due to a big rush of Covid patients.

The surge in Covid cases in recent weeks have led to what is now being called a deadlier second wave of the pandemic.

Social media is full of stories of desperate people trying to find oxygen or a hospital bed for their friends and family.
