Sonu Sood has become a real messiah during the COVID-19 crisis. From helping migrant workers reach their homes to providing financial assistance, the actor has done everything for the needy. Now he has launched an initiative for COVID testing and free medical consultations.
Yes, you read that right! While central and state governments have made efforts to make testing affordable, a significant portion still cannot due to financial conditions. In view of this situation, Sonu launched free services. The initiative was started by Sood Foundation in collaboration with Heal Well 24 and Krsnaa Diagnostics Pvt Ltd.
Speaking to Twitter, Sonu Sood wrote, “You take REST. Let me handle the TEST. Launched FREE COVID HELP with @ HealWell24 @Krsnaa_D @SoodFoundation. “
You take rest.
Let me handle the TEST.

Meanwhile, a few days ago, Sonu Sood made arrangements to airlift a seriously ill 25-year-old Covid-19 patient from Nagpur to Hyderabad for treatment.
The patient named Bharti is the daughter of a retired railway officer and she is said to have lost nearly 85-90% of her lungs to Covid-19. Sonu first helped her transfer her to a private hospital in Nagpur. Doctors then suggested that she needed a lung transplant.
Sonu arranged for the patient to be airlifted to Apollo Hospital, Hyderabad, for a treatment called ECMO, in which blood is artificially pumped around the body to relieve pressure from the lungs. “The doctors said the odds were 20 percent and asked if I still wanted to go ahead. I said “of course”. She is a 25 year old girl who will fight the battle hard and come out stronger. That’s why we took this chance and decided to get an air ambulance. The treatment is going well and we hope for the best, ”added Sonu.
