The family not only lost him after a marathon fight against Covid, also burdened with huge amount of medical expenses (5 Lakhs) for their hospital stay for a month where he lived in ICU with Oxygen support.
Duraisamy worked as a driver for a private cooking gas agency. As a front line covid worker he ensured many people's cooking gas needs are met before he lost his life to Covid. The family tried everything to save him and unfortunately the good soul departed without even seeing his daughter for a month.
Before it all started he was a proud father raised two kids successfully as a single earning parent. But left this world before seeing their success in their respective jobs. Both of them are just starting their careers respectively. Elder one has completed a civil engineering and started a design related job in the local town for low wages. He was also affected by Covid in the midst of all and recovered. The younger one after her Bsc degree just started a career as tester in a software company.
On 23rd May, with heavy coughs and shortness in breath he was admitted into hospital as his oxygen levels went very low (SPO2 around 60). His lungs were heavily affected. He was surviving with oxygen support for couple of days without getting admission to intensive care anywhere. After couple of days he got admission into a private hospital where he spent a month all alone in fighting against a Covid and lost his life on 24th June.
The family lost all of their Savings and the insurance limit and now they ended up paying 5 Lakhs more to cover his medical expenses.
