Coronavirus. Sonu Sood has been helping citizens get the required treatment amid the ravaging Covid-19 crisis, which has left the country devastated and exposed the loopholes in India’s healthcare infrastructure, causing deaths due to lack of oxygen, beds and medicines rather than the virus alone. The ARAK hospital, which had already lost two patients due to shortage of oxygen, was at the risk of losing 20-22 Covid-19 patients when Hashmath Raza from the Karnataka team of Sonu Sood Charity foundation received an SOS call from a police official informing about the dire situation at the hospital. Sonu Sood lauded the team for its timely response to the SOS call.×1.png
