Subhash Ghai says that no nation can tackle COVID with resources alone, emphasises the importance of self-discipline
Subhash Ghai said that ‘no nation can regulate COVID’ with more medical services such as ventilators and ICU beds, and blamed it on citizens’ actions.
The current COVID-19 crisis has shed light on the shortage of hospital beds, oxygen supplies, ventilators, and ICU wards, as SOS demands for them have been raging in recent days. Subhash Ghai, on the other hand, noted that ‘no nation would be able to handle’ the pandemic by increasing these services, which he referred to as ‘temporary’ solutions. According to the veteran filmmaker, citizens’ behaviour would determine the ‘path of the pandemic.’
Ghai took to Twitter to declare that increasing the number of beds, oxygen, ventilators, and ICU wards were only ‘temporary, impossible, and very expensive’ solutions to the crisis. The Ram Lakhan filmmaker used the example of road accident fatalities to demonstrate that people’s behaviour, rather than more hospitals and other medical resources, was the deciding factor. He also advised people to “remain calm.”
*No nation in the world is able to control Covid by increasing beds, oxygen, ventilators & ICU wards
This is temporary, impossible and very expensive*
*Remember, hospitals are not built to stop road accidents
behaviour of the people decides course of the pandemic
