An 85-year-old COVID-19 patient gives up his bed for a younger patient.

Dabhadkar, a COVID-19 afflicted RSS worker, opted for a discharge against the medical advice to provide his bed to a younger person in Nagpur.During the second wave of the pandemic, an 85-year-old active member of the RSS, Narayan Dabhadkar, had contracted COVID-19. As Dabhadkar's SPO2 levels fell, his daughter finally got him admitted to Indira Gandhi Hospital after many attempts. Dabhadkar's grandson-in-law, Wakhare, wrote on a Facebook post that while being taken to the hospital, Dabhadkar felt breathless. On April 22, after staying for few hours at the Indira Gandhi hospital, Dabhalkar opted for a discharge against medical advice. He decided to seek release after witnessing a woman pleading to get her 40-year-old husband admitted, said his family members. He chose to give up his bed to save a younger person's life, the family revealed. Dabhadkar told the medical team that the hospital should give his bed to the lady's husband without hesitation. "I am 85 now, and I have lived my life; you should give the bed to this man instead because his children require him," Dabhadkar said. Speaking to the Times of India, an Indira Gandhi hospital official verified that the hospital records have Dabhalkar's name and said, "Whom to give the bed to is the prerogative of the doctors. Although Dabhadkar's leaving would have certainly eased the pressure by creating space for someone else." Dabhadkar signed a consent form stating that he gave up his bed for the young man. He left for his heavenly abode three days after being discharged. The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation.
