For Soumya Ranjan Behura, age-34 from Choudwar, Cuttack.... a private company employee, his family's covid nightmare began on April 22nd, when his sister in law was detected with covid symptoms and found RTPCR positive. Gradually his entire family including his brother , his father, mother, wife and himself tested positive and got admitted in Aditya Aswin covid hospital and AMRI hospital leaving his 1 year old son at home. Everyone in his family recovered except the younger one in the family that's Soumya who's condition didn't improve and he was put in NIV and later on in Ventilator approximately for 12 days in the same hospital, where as no improvement was noticed. COVID infection has caused severe pneumonia and other fungal infections which were primary cause of his illness.
Considering his health conditions their family decided and shifted him to some private hospital in Bhubaneswar where he has been advised to be under ECMO support, which was the only thing that could let him survive. He is under ECMO +Ventilator support since May 23rd wherein no significant improvement has been noticed in his condition and the treating physician has asked to shift him to higher health facility I e MGM hospital, Chennai for further treatment.
He was shifted to MGM Chennai on dt 16th June 2021 and is under treatment under Dr Suresh Kumar Rao.
Till now the family has racked up bills more than Rs 80 lakh.(Bills attached )
The approximate per day ECMO aided treatment costs Rs 2.5 lakh excluding the unforseen medical expenses. And the family Is meeting the expenses incurred by mortgaging the assets one by one.
For a middle class family its not easy to accumulate such huge amount to meet the hospital expenses. So as a very close friend of the couple i request you to extend your support for the young guy and help him to survive. Any small contribution will help him to see and live a new life.
The bills of the treatment cost of Sum Ultimate and MGM health care is attached for your reference.
PLEASE HELP HIM.
A SMALL ACT OF KINDNESS WILL HELP HIM TO GET A NEW LIFE.
