One of my family’s closest friend, you people know him as well. I don’t want to reveal his identity. He had fever for past two days and today morning he had a severe breathing problem and it looked like a Corona attack” says Varadarajan in his video.
“When we tried to admit him, no hospital had a single bed. All big hospitals in Chennai. Even in Government hospitals, there was no single bed for our friend. Hospital authorities are asking us not to go the hospitals as they can do nothing to help us. They said that they couldn’t able to treat him. We even approached Government security by using our influence. We talked with hospital MD, owner and chairman. Nobody could help us. They are very frank as there is actually no bed to admit him. He is a very disciplined person, we don’t know how he got infected” he said who went on to warn people who are roaming outside without reason.
