Telangana: Many live with guilt of infecting, causing death of loved ones
HYDERABAD: A 27-year-old doctor who had contracted Covid-19 and had lost his sister to the infection, is now on medication for anety and depression. He feels he was responsible for her death.
“I knew that my family was at risk and although I isolated myself when I reached home after work, I could have moved out of the house instead,” said Sayeed, who continues to experience sleep disturbances and nightmares even two months after the death because of the guilt.
Kalyan P’s father died of Covid-19. “Initially, my wife and I tested positive for Covid-19. We immediately went into isolation, but, within three days my parents tested positive. My father’s oxygen level went down drastically, but we couldn’t even get a bed in hospital. We somehow managed to get an oxygen cylinder and started his treatment at home, but he died in the last week of April,” said Kalyan adding that it was because of him his father died as he kept on postponing getting them vaccinated due to office work.
There are many such people who feel that their infection led to the death of a loved one. They are carrying this heavy burden on their shoulders despite having recovered from Covid-19. Unable to come out of the guilt, they have sought help from psychologists.
Guilt, psychologists say, is part of grief. But when it continues for too long, it can become dangerous to the point where a patient contemplates suicide.
I hope some people now live with the guild of voting BJP to power
Many are living with guilt but biggest culprit is still at large and has no guilt. He is proud conducting mass spread rallies in Bengal. Not doing anything about super spreader Kumbh and not taking any actions. Give him a award or something
Many Indians will lose sleep because they ved an illiterate Self Professed Chaiw to Power.
Long term psychological problems are yet to be studied in depth Children confined to homes for over a year are undergoing untold traumas too.
FEKU AND TAKLU ARE TEH ONES WHO SHOULD BE FEEL GUILTY FOR THROWING AN ENTIRE NATION IN GALLOWS. THEY WOULD NOT REPENT. YOU WILL SEE THEM IN FULL ACTIONS IN NEXT YEAR UP ELECTIONS. SHAMELESS CREATURES.
God will never forgive you Mr P.M. You are the culprit of all these lives. If you have some shame left then announce lockdown now.
This surely indicates our po iticians don't have a human heart, the way they're doing rallies after rallies. Had I been in their position I would have definitely contemplated suicide for grave mistakes committed in terms of conducting rallies.
Please educated PM next time
Some people are asking Modi to take responsibility of this failure and resign. Some people are questioning why Modi/BJP was ed. Well these points are acceptable in current situation but ask your self, do we have any better choice?
Yesterday i was at the chemist. And 3 young educated people were walking past without masks. When i reprimanded them they abused me. Then i showed them what Army officers are trained for and single handedly knocked down all 3.
We Indians conviniently blame po iticians but in reality its the fault of the people themselves.Even today ppl are not wearing masks properly or not following the norms properly.The reality is people who have died so far paid the price for someone else’s mistakes

The joker should resign and go to himyas to reflect on the deaths of million people in india.
Humans have created this mess and we have to take the affects of the same
Why still no national lockdown?
Maybe the go nment is too concerned about ECONOMY...
I think a complete lockdown will only make sense if 80% people can be vaccinated in those 15 days. But that can't happen due to unavailability of vaccines.
now no point compning.
If there is anyone in India who should feel guilt then that should be Modi. All the deaths and the peoples curses are upon him. Butcher of India.
one covid positive person can infect up to 400 persons if he/ she comes in contact with other without social distance. If so, why super spreader event of Kumbh Mela with millions & millions of people attendance was permitted.
I ved for Modi twice, first time with expectations from Modi and second time largely to keep out the Congress.
