Netizens hail India’s ‘Hero’ Doctor for saving life of a patient by putting his own life on risk.

Netizens have hailed exceptional valor and dedication of Dr. Zahid for putting his own life on risk to save a Covid-19 patient.
His colleague at AIIMS, New Delhi shared his heroic act in a Facebook post.

He wrote “Dr. Zahid, DM critical care resident from our department showed exceptional valour and dedication while catering to a COVID patient. While on duty he was not even able to break his ramdaan fast when he was called for shifting a COVID positive intubated patient to the ICU. Unfortunately, when zahid reached the ambulance he noted difficulty in ventilating the patient and suspected accidental extubation. He immediately decided to re-intubate. Owing to poor visibility through the PPE inside the ambulance, he decided to remove his goggles and then re intubated the patient in such sub optimal condition keeping in mind the imminent death of the patient if he failed. He didnt think twice before taking full blown aerosol exposure from the patient. I dont know how astute the decision was to put one self at risk, but zahid definitely prevented an inevitable death. He has got himself exposed to highest possible viral load just to deliver his duty. I dont know if zahid will contract COVID, but i pray that he comes out well and strong. I believe that the way he has proven his courage and mettle will be an encouragement to many others towards their selfless dedication to this profession.

Replying to this Dr. Zahid wrote on Facebook.
“I can’t defend its wisdom ..I tell you all not to do this ..but the situation over flooded my capacity of prioritising self protection ..I dnt want it to be made an example ..save your own self first
All I felt I couldn’t face my own conscience If I wouldn’t do.. Islam teaches us selflessness via fasting during Ramadhan to seek salvage by serving the fellow humans .”

Dr. Zahid Siddiqui hails from Islamabad, Jammu and Kashmir and is practicing at AIIMS, New Delhi.

The story of the ‘Hero Doctor’ went viral on twitter. Many Twitteratis hailed the heroism of the doctor.
