Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has been a hero for the underprivileged and working-class ever since the coronavirus outbreak last year. But even the biggest heroes are struggling amid the second wave of Covid-19. As coronavirus cases continue to rise, Sood is struggling to arrange hospital beds and medicines.
The actor tweeted on Monday that not only he and his team but even the healthcare system has failed people. “Request for beds: 570. I could arrange just: 112. Requests for Remdesivir: 1477. I could arrange just: 18. Yes, we have failed. So is our health care system,” wrote a disheartened Sood.
