Mother says systemic inequities in Peel Region’s healthcare system to blame for son’s COVID-19 death | OMNI News

“The nurse started talking to me in Hindi…she said something that got me more anxious. She said, ‘we have so many patients before him and I don’t know how many will die’.”

ਇਸੇ ਮਹੀਨੇ ਬਰੈਂਪਟਨ ਦੇ 36 ਸਾਲਾਂ ਨੌਜਵਾਨ ਹਰਮਨਦੀਪ ਸਿੰਘ ਓਬਰੌਏ ਦੀ ਕੋਵਿਡ ਦੀਆਂ ਗੰਭੀਰ ਸਥਿਤੀਆਂ ਵਿਚੋਂ ਗੁਜ਼ਰਦੇ ਹੋਏ ਮੌਤ ਹੋ ਗਈ ਸੀ। ਓਬਰੌਏ ਦੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਵਲੋਂ ਉਸਦੇ ਕੋਵਿਡ ਪੌਜ਼ਿਟਿਵ ਹੋਣ ਤੋਂ ਲੈ ਕੇ ਉਸਦੀ ਮੌਤ ਤੱਕ ਦੀਆਂ ਘਟਨਾਵਾਂ ਦੇ ਵੇਰਵੇ ਮੀਡੀਆ ਨਾਲ ਸਾਂਝੇ ਕੀਤੇ ਗਏ ਹਨ, ਅਤੇ ਪਰਿਵਾਰ ਦਾ ਮੰਨਣਾ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਜੇਕਰ ਬਰੈਂਪਟਨ ਸਿਵਿਕ ਹਸਪਤਾਲ ਵਲੋਂ ਇਸ ਕੇਸ ਵਿਚ ਸੁਹਿਰਦਤਾ ਅਤੇ ਗੰਭੀਰਤਾ ਵਿਖਾਈ ਜਾਂਦੀ ਤਾਂ ਹਰਮਨਦੀਪ ਬਚ ਸਕਦਾ ਸੀ। ਇਸ ਕੁੱਲ ਘਟਨਾਂਕ੍ਰਮ ਬਾਰੇ ਕਈ ਧਿਰਾਂ ਵਲੋਂ ਪੜਚੋਲ ਕੀਤੀ ਜਾ ਰਹੀ ਹੈ ਕਿ ਕੀ ਅਸਲ ਵਿਚ ਇਸਦਾ ਕਾਰਨ ਖੇਤਰ ਵਿਚ ਵਧਿਆ ਕੋਵਿਡ ਦਾ ਪ੍ਰਕੋਪ ਹੀ ਸੀ?
