New Delhi: As the second wave of Covid-19 seems to subside a little, according to the government, more and more heroes have now emerged with unmatched bravery and kindness.
Social Media is still flooded with queries and requirements of oxygen cylinders, plasma donors, hospital beds and so on, and it has proved to be helpful for a lot of people. In a recent incident, the Delhi Police played the role of a hero by saving the life of a 21-week-pregnant lady.
On May 10, Sub Inspector Akashdeep, presently posted in PS Roop Nagar, donated plasma to a 27-year-old lady who was 21-week-pregnant and tested positive for Covid-19. She was being treated in a hospital in Delhi's Uttam Nagar area.
A team working under the 'Jeeven Rakshak' initiative of Delhi Police noticed a tweet about a 21-week-pregnant lady in need of O+ blood group plasma being circulated on social media.
The team then approached the contact number available in the tweet and acquired more details of the patient. They then approached SI Akashdeep, posted in PS Roop Nagar, North District, to donate plasma. The cop immediately affirmed his willingness to donate plasma and reached the Institute of Liver and Biliary Sciences hospital as per directions. There, he donated plasma and later handed it over to the husband. He prayed for a speedy recovery of the pregnant lady and the baby.
When CitySpidey spoke to SI Akashdeep and asked him about his experience, he said, "It was indeed a very good experience. The times are really hard right now and we have to be there for each other to make things better.”
On his Covid journey, he said, “I tested positive for Covid on April 18. The symptoms started one week prior to that. On April 29, I finally tested negative. I decided to help others then. I appeal to everyone else as well to do their bit. If you can donate plasma, please do it.”
The husband said that he had been trying to arrange donors but most of them could not fulfil the basic criteria needed to donate plasma, as per medical guidelines. He said he had started to lose hope before the cops contacted him.
The family is delighted and praised the instant efforts by Delhi Police aka 'Dil ki Police'.
