Opinion: A Delhi Senior Dies Of COVID-19. How The System Failed Him Thoroughly.

Sohan Lal died of a COVID infection yesterday. He was 60. I have known him since the '70s when I was working in the textile workers' trade union. His elder brother, Nathu Prasad, a close comrade, was a worker in the Delhi Cloth Mills who was dismissed by the management for his union activities and later started working full-time for the union. The youngest of four brothers, a gentle and quiet teenager when I had first met him, Sohan Lal grew up into a responsible adult working hard as a vegetable seller to look after his family. He had been to the Azadpur Mandi on Friday the 15th. On Tuesday, he developed diarrhea and vomiting. The next day, he had to be hospitalised as his breathing got affected.
