In the video, she said, “I am making this video with great difficulty. I really want to tell each and everyone who knows me, please don’t take corona so lightly. Very bad, very bad symptoms. I am not able to speak. But I really want to convey my message to all.”

The video has gone viral after it was shared by her husband Ravish Chawla, who wanted to fulfill the last wishes of his wife to spread awareness, so that everyone takes the pandemic seriously and take necessary measures before things got worse.
“It was in her innate nature to inform people about what precautions they can take. So she had actually made this for our family and friends. But her untimely demise made me post this message to the world so that the world can know that you should not take Covid so lightly,” Ravish said.
“It was her message and you should be wearing a mask not just for yourself but for the elderly or pregnant women and that was my wife’s message. I just want people to know about it,” Ravish added.
