The sudden increase in the number of Coronavirus cases across the country, has put a strain on our medical resources. Several social media influencers have been using their reach on Instagram and Twitter to amplify the SOS calls of patients from all over the country, and have also been sharing about the availability of beds in hospitals, oxygen supply, and more. Amid shortage in supplies of certain COVID drugs, black marketing and hoarding of the medicines have become matters of serious concern. Now, Bigg Boss 13 winner Sidharth Shukla tweeted about the same, and wrote that he is shocked and sad to see people hoarding medicines to derive profit.
In his tweet made on Tuesday, Sidharth Shukla wrote how heartbreaking it is to see that people have been hoarding oxygen cylinders and medicines that could save someone’s life, just for seeking profits. He pointed out how bad the current situation is, and that people are dying. He further tweeted how extremely sad it is that the cheapest thing today is human life. “It’s so sad to see Soul power of we humans drop to such levels where we hoarding oxygen cylinders, medicines that could be life saving just to make profits .... people are dying out here ! The cheapest thing today is human life !” tweeted Sidharth.
Meanwhile, earlier, Kusha Kapila also tweeted how shocked she was to find out that a COVID drug was being sold in the black market for a staggering amount.
