My / our friend Pratheep Kumar was admitted in Annai Hospital on 26th Apr'21 due to severe COVID 19 infection and was undergoing emergency treatment in ICU. Later on he was moved to Prashanth Hospital on 6th May'21 and is undergoing treatment still. Latest record indicate that his lung infection is upto 95% and the treatment may still go for another 2 weeks. Hospital expenses till 7th Jun'21 was INR 24.5 lacs (INR 4.5 lacs in the previous hospital and INR 20 lacs in current hospital) and we expect another INR 1.5 lacs may get billed till his discharge, totalling his medical expenses to INR 26 lacs. As his family is already very much stressed due to his health condition, I request everyone to render financial support to him and his family so that we can try to lessen their burden. Even a small contribution will prove effective collectively. Let's all join together and pray for his swift recovery.
