Mumbai. Vinod Gandhi, the father of Bhavya Gandhi, the old tappu of the TV show ‘Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashma’, died on Tuesday. They were infected with the corona virus. He was undergoing treatment at Kokilaben Hospital. In an interview to Spotboye, Vinod Gandhi’s wife Yashoda Gandhi gave information about his struggle to save him. He told that ‘my husband was taking all the preconceptions since the corona virus has come. Took all measures like applying mask, social distance maintenance and hand sanitizing, yet got infected with the virus. He told that he was not feeling well though he had no problems. The next day, he had a mild fever, so I gave him medicine. After this, he got 5 percent infection in chest scanning. The doctor said to keep them at home in isolation. When there was no rest in 2 days, after a CT scan again, it was found that his infection has doubled. Yashoda further told that, ‘After this, the battle to admit them in the hospital started, but beds were not getting anywhere. Wherever you call, we used to tell you to register with BMC, when the number will come, we will call you. With the help of Bhavya’s manager, he was admitted to a hospital. After 2 days, he asked them to shift to another hospital to keep them in ICU, because there was no ICU there. Gandhi further said that, ‘I made at least 500 calls for ICU beds. From hospital, politicians, activists to NGOs, my family members also tried, but ICU beds were not found. Me and my family were feeling helpless. After this, a friend of mine arranged for ICU bed in a small hospital in Goregaon. ‘After this, the doctor asked me to arrange for’ toxin ‘injection. I feel very sorry to tell you that I have not received the injection that is made in the country. I had to get an injection from Dubai and had to pay 1 lakh rupees for 45 thousand injections, yet we could not save their lives. ‘ Yashoda told that in the end he had to shift to Kokilaben. They were not willing to admit as they said that without BMC registration they are not admitting the Kovid patient. They asked me to take them elsewhere, but where were I going to take them, they were unconscious. I somehow convinced him and finally he gave me the ICU bed. After fighting for 15 days with the virus in the hospital, he lost the battle of life.
