Emotional Mumbai Lady Doctor Appeals Everyone To Be Safe, Wear Masks
Mumbai: An emotional video of a Mumbai doctor in tears urging people to be safe has gone viral on social media.
As hospitals are filled with COVID-19 patients and the numbers of affected persons are increasing each passing second, the lady doctor urges everyone to take the vaccine and wear masks in the viral video.
The doctor has been identified as Dr Trupti Gilada from Mumbai. She is an infectious diseases specialist, sources said.
In the video Trupti can be seen saying, “I have never seen anything like this. We are so helpless. Like many doctors I am troubled. I don’t know what to do. I am heart-broken. Maybe if I tell you what worries me. If I can help you understand, I might be more at peace”.
“We have to manage so many patients…critically ill patients are being treated at home because there are no beds…we are not enjoying this…,” she adds, breaking down in tears at this point.

In teary eyes, she then lists three precautions every single person: man, woman and child – must take to fight the Covid pandemic.
“First….please stay safe. If you have not yet gotten COVID…or you were infected but have recovered….don’t think you are a superhero or that you have some immunity…you are wrong. We are seeing so many young people get infected….and we can’t help them,” she says.
Still crying Dr Gilada says: “Don’t want any of you to be in this situation”, as she talks about a 35-year-old Covid patient on ventilator and struggling to stay alive.
“Second.. Covid is everywhere! If you leave home, for whatever reason, you HAVE TO WEAR YOUR MASK. It doesn’t matter why you are going out…but you have to wear face masks, and make sure your nose is fully covered,” she says.
“Third..if you feel unwell…don’t panic and try to get admitted. There is no space at any hospital….and the few beds we have need for critically ill patients. First isolate yourself, get in touch with your doctor…and let us decide…”Dr Gilada says in her appeal.
“If you haven’t taken it yet, for whatever reason, please do so! There is a definite improvement…people who get two doses, their infection is not as severe. The vaccine definitely helps,” she says.
