Indian-origin surgeon Satyendra Dev Khanna and her daughter Priya Khanna died in a war with the Coronavirus in New Jersey province of the United States. Both were killed by Coronavirus. Province Governor Phil Murphy expressed grief over the demise of the doctor’s father-daughter, saying that he had dedicated his life to others. We cannot express our feelings in words. Many doctors of Indian origin are vulnerable to Coronavirus. Most doctors who are infected are reported to be from New York and New Jersey.
Doctors of Indian origin are proud
President of the American Association of Physicians of India (American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI)), Dr. Suresh Reddy said that we bravely appreciate the fight against the virus by hundreds of Indian-origin medical personnel. Every 7th doctor in America is an Indian and they are at the forefront. They are acting as soldiers and fighting the virus. In the US, Indian-origin doctors account for 5 percent. AAPI represents over 80 thousand physicians of Indian origin.
Reddy said that the fight against COVID-19 is not going to end in a few months. This time can be up to 1-2 years until a vaccine or antiviral agent is developed. Reddy said that as the US emerges from the epidemic, a lesson must be learned that the US must establish its manufacturing base so that it does not have to depend on China for supplies. For example, if we manufactured companies manufacturing masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) in the US, we would not have problems with supply shortages. Not everyone needs to look towards China to get masks, PPE, ventilators.
The entire family is involved in the medical field
78-year-old Satyendra Dev Khanna was the head of the surgical department at several hospitals in New Jersey. While his 43-year-old daughter Priya was the Chief of Residents at Central Hospital. Khanna’s entire family is involved in the medical field. Satyendra died at Clara Mass Medical Center for over 35 years. Priya also died in this hospital. He also worked in this hospital.
Priya did all her medical training in New Jersey. She then joined Cooper Health System for a fellowship in nephrology. He was also the medical director of two dialysis centers in Essex County. He died in the month of April.
Wife and two other daughters are also doctors
Governor Murphy also spoke to Komal Khanna, Satyendra’s wife is a pediatrician. The couple’s two other daughters Sugandha and Aneesh are also doctors.
Madhavi died in a hospital in New York
61-year-old Madhavi, who was infected while treating Coronavirus patients in a hospital in New York, died in the month of April. She was from Kerala. She could not meet her daughter and husband even in her last days. Madhavi’s family, (her husband and daughter), feels that she has died due to hospital negligence.
Madhavi, who works in the Emergency Room at Woodhall Hospital in Brooklyn, New York, told the husband and daughter in the message that she was treating patients infected with Coronavirus. He made a shocking statement that he has been given only one surgical mask from the hospital. This mask is insufficient to protect against airborne infections. She could only contact her family through mobile at the end of her life.
Significantly, 2448 Coronavirus infected has died in the US in the last 24 hours. With this, the death toll in the US has crossed 75,543. The coronavirus infection population has reached approximately 1.3 million. Relieving news is that 217,251 Coronavirus patients have recovered and gone home. A large number of Indian doctors and nurses are in the grip of the Quran.
