“At times my son insists me to keep him in Lap, but I deny with tears”, Father of 10 year old Covid-19 patient


Srinagar, Apr 09 (KINS): Emotions run high in the Isolation ward here in Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences Soura, as a father refuses to leave his 10-year-old son, alone. The boy was tested positive for Covid-19.

“At present I am going through the worst time of my life. “I am trying to keep distance from my son here in same room but at times my son insists me to keep him in lap, but I deny with tears,” the father told Kashmir Indepth News Service (KINS) over phone from SKIMS.

“My daughter is in quarantine along with my wife at another place. She calls me oftenly and says “(Baba mujay apnay pass lelo yanha mama roti hain), Dad take me there, mom is crying, and then my daughter also starts crying, this makes me to sob too”

He said how he can leave his son alone in the ward. “He is too little to be left alone,” the father said.

 “My brother in law came to visit us keeping at least 20 feet distance. All of sudden when my son saw him, he cried (MAMU) I want to go to home. Then my brother in- Law cried and rest was tears and tears”.

 My wife called me and said.

“(KYA PATA KAB MILAY APNAY BACHO KAI SAATH AGAR NA MILAY TOU JANNAT MAI ZAROOR. AUR MERAY BETAY KA KHAYAL RAKHNA) “We don’t know when we will meet again, if we won’t meet here we will meet in paradise, take care of my son,”

“He said he has no complaint against administration, doctors, Paramedical staff and others in SKIMS soura hospital.  “All are doing tremendous job here. The doctors are cooperative and so are the paramedical and other staffers,”

“I hope my son will get well soon and we all will be together at home again. I appeal people to take covid-19 as a tremendously serious issue”.

The 10-year-old boy was tested positive for the coronavirus however all the family members were tested negative.

Authorities had quarantined the father, mother, and sister of the Covid-19 patient shortly after he was tested positive.

According to the father of the boy, his son had hugged a Tableegi Jamaat member in Srinagar on March 21 and for at least a week he showed no symptoms. Suddenly, the boy complained of high fever on March 28. On the same day the doctors had advised him for 2 week home quarantine.

However after KINS exclusively reported the ordeal of father and his son on March 29, a medical team reached his residence with an ambulance on March 30 and admitted him in SKIMS, Soura where his tests were done which came positive on March 31.(KINS)
