According to the Indian media, Renu Singhal, seeing her Covid-19 positive husband gasping for breath, tried to resuscitate him but couldn’t save his life. Even as she performed mouth-to-mouth resuscitation on her husband, Ravi Singhal died on her lap inside an auto outside a hospital in Agra.

Renu Singhal, a resident of Awas Vikas Sector 7 in Uttar Pradesh’s Agra, had brought Ravi Singhal (47) to the Sarojini Naidu Medical College (SNMC) and Hospital after he experienced breathlessness. Renu Singhal took an auto from her residence in Sector 7 and reached the government facility.
