Dasari had to travel in the second week of April on personal work, but by the time he reached Vizag, his sister's family, wife and child were affected. Though asymptomatic, Dasari too got tested and was found to be Covid-19 positive. He immediately informed his superior and started medication at home under a doctor's supervision. A few days later, he was taking a turn for the worse, but Dr. Reddy's jumped in to get him admitted to a hospital within an hour.
"The assurance and support I received at a time of need felt like I was a family member for all my superiors. It gave me confidence and helped me to recover soon."
