Gandhwani (Dhar district, Madhya Pradesh): A sexagenarian, who lost her husband to Covid-19 and was infected too with her sons, beat the virus with her strong will and courage.

Retired patwari Shantilal Gupta was infected with coronavirus and was under treatment at a private hospital in Indore since April 13. He succumbed to Covid-19 on April 17. After his cremation, the family members went to the Gandhwani Community Health Centre for tests. Three family members were found corona positive.

They were home quarantined on doctors’ advice. The sons began losing courage but their mother Manorama Gupta gave them strength and courage and finally the family beat Covid-19.

Manorama Gupta told Free Press that depression had engulfed her family after her husband’s death and when her sons too tested Covid positive along with her.

“It was essential for me to maintain strength and encourage my sons so that we defeat the fatal virus. Finally, we all came out victorious,” she added.

She said that it is essential to be strong and courageous on being infected as more than medicines, strength and courage will help one to heal.
