Rizwana Vaqas, who runs Okhla’s top food channel on YouTube with huge following, is one among them to lose three family members in a very short span of time.
“Within 5 days I lost my 3 dear ones. Now my mother-in- law (Asghari Begum w/o Mohammad Zeyaul Haque) has left us orphaned,” she wrote on her timeline.
A few days ago she wrote this on her channel page Shaila’s Dastarkhwan: “Aadab, you are my extended family and you deserve to know my cause of absence. My entire family was tested Covid positive and we had to admit 3 of them in hospital. My husband came back after 6 days, on April 22 I lost my father-in-law to Covid. “Same day my mother (ammi) expired. It was a natural death. Now my mother-in-law left us on April 28. It is devastating for my family…May Allah place my father-in-law, my ammi and my mother-in-law in highest place in jannah. I am unable to create any video for you, kindly forgive me. My mind, heart is not in a good state. Please keep me and my family in your prayers,” she wrote.
Rizwana’s mother Hashmat Begum was 82 years old and she died of heart attack on April 22.
A very close family relative told the OT that Asghari Begum, who died on April 28, was hospitalised in Holy Family Hospital. After 14 days of hospitalization, her report was negative but she had many secondary infections.
Both Mohammad Zeyaul Haque and Asghari Begum had comorbidities.
