Bollywood actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik who has recovered from COVID-19 was left worried as his daughter Vanshika also tested positive for the deadly virus. In his latest Instagram post, he was seen speaking about the rising cases of COVID-19, the worrisome thing is the ongoing pandemic which is equally affecting children. The senior actor in his post is heard urging CM of Maharashtra Uddhav Thackeray, Maharashtra Health Minister Rajesh Tope, MLA Aslam Shaikh to provide sufficient hospitals for kids battling against COVID-19.
In his video he is also seen urging the government to have paediatricians looking after the children as they specialize in it, helping children recover faster. The actor mentioned that he has experienced the pain as his daughter was COVID-19 positive. Even after the actor was discharged from the hospital his daughter was in the hospital which had left him worried. In his Instagram post, he also mentioned that the only hospitals for kids in Mumbai are located in South Mumbai, thus making it challenging for the parents of the children residing in the other parts of the city to commute there.
His Instagram caption read, “COVID 19 Children This wave of Corona is affecting children a lot. there r Wadia & SRCC hospitals for them in south Mumbai.
