Amarunisa Begum, a 52-year-old resident of Mehdipattanam in Hyderabad, tested positive for the coronavirus on April 16, but couldn’t find an ICU bed. Her son-in-law, Mohammad Sayeed says after a day of struggling to find a bed, they chose to treat her at home for the next six days, “But day by day her lung infection kept getting worse. We had procured oxygen cylinders but didn’t know at what level to keep the oxygen, if we should keep it high or to keep it low and when to do that. A common man can’t monitor a patient whose vitals are dropping,” he says.
