New Delhi:

A 30-year-old woman in an oxygen mask inside a Covid emergency ward in Delhi, swaying to a hit Bollywood song, became viral this week when her doctor appealed for prayers to help her come through. The woman died yesterday, said Dr Monika Langeh, in a post on Thursday.  

"I am very sorry. We lost the brave girl," Dr Langeh tweeted.

The woman initially did not get a hospital bed. She was later shifted to an ICU ward where her condition was not serious, Dr Langeh had said in a previous post in which she shared a video of the woman waving to the camera and swaying to the tunes of "Love You Zindagi" from the 2016 film 'Dear Zindagi'. The doctor said a "little kid" was waiting for her at home.

The post drew an outpouring of grief and shock on the social media platform already flooded by heart-wrenching stories of Covid victims. A user found the news particularly disturbing after having seen the woman's amazing spirit in the video.

Another user offered condolences to the family and had a word of praise for the doctor.
