Name: Dipak Halder
Home Town: Kolkata
Hospital: Medica Superspecialty hospital
Working at: Tata Consultancy Services, Lloyds Road, Kolkata
Dipak was tested covid-19 positive on 25th May and was facing sore throat and mild fever. However the situation deteriorated and he needed to be hospitalized and put on oxygen support on 30th May at Sushrusha Nursing home, Kolkata. Later as his situation deteriorated, he was shifted to Medica Superspecialty hospital, Kolkata on 9th June and put on ventilator support. Currently he is on ECMO and will need long term ventilation till his lungs recover. If his lung conditions does not improve, he might need lung transplant.
The present treatment till date has already drained most of our savings. Although we are trying our best to provide him the medical care needed will need your generous help to continue the fight to save my husband and my daughter’s father…
Here is a brief estimate of the expenses (in INR) going ahead.
- ECMO setup cost - 6 Lacs
- Treatment period (45 days x 2L/day) - 90 Lacs
We recently lost Dipak's father to Covid, after him being hospitalized for 15 days. Dipak spent his full effort in taking care of him in his last days, and now he himself is hospitalized.
I sincerely appeal to you all to help us in this time of need and support us in this fight against Covid-19. Every small contribution counts and we and our family are forever grateful for your help.
