Coronavirus has killed many people around the world. At the same time there have been stories of people beating the deadly virus.

Okhla Vihar-based 45-year-old Irfan Ali is one such person who despite all odds against him succeeded in beating the virus.

Ali’s son Arshad said when we came to know about our father testing positive we were left shocked as he suffers from cancer and is on dialysis . However, the family is delighted after he came back home recovered from the virus during Ramzan.

“My father is on dialysis and during Ramzan he regularly used to visit a hospital. However due to some reasons his dialysis was discontinued and we took him to another hospital in Jasola where he was asked for corona test. He had no symptoms but he got positive and the family was disturbed. He was admitted to a hospital and he recovered fast. We are thankful to the Almighty otherwise were were deeply concerned as he also suffers from throat cancer,” said Arshad.

It was during this time that Okhla-headquartered NGO Aseem Asha Foundation intervened to make sure that Ali gets the best treatment, said Aseem who runs the NGO.
