On Sunday (May 9), popular YouTuber and content creator Rahul Vohra passed away after succumbing to Covid-19 related complications. The news of his demise came days after he pleaded to his Facebook followers to arrange for an oxygen bed.
The development was confirmed on Facebook by the Director of the Asmita Theatre Group, Arvind Gaur. “Rahul Vohra is no more. My talented actor has passed away. Only yesterday, Rahul had lamented that he wouldn’t die if he had received better treatment. Yesterday evening, he was shifted from Rajeev Gandhi Hospital to Ayushman hospital in Dwarka. Sorry, we couldn’t save you. We are your killers,” he wrote paying his last homage. Gaur also shared the video of his cremation on Facebook.
In a Facebook post on May 4, Rahul Vohra had informed his followers that he was Coronavirus positive. He said that he had been admitted to a hospital but showing no signs of recovery, even after 4 days. “Is there any hospital, where oxygen beds are available? My oxygen levels are decreasing gradually. There is none to look after me? I am posting this in a very helpless state. My family members are unable to handle the situation,” he had lamented.
A day prior to his death, Rahul Vohra wrote his last message. “If I had received proper treatment, then, I possibly would have survived.” For the last time, he had shared his name, age, hospital name, bed, and floor number in hopes of a last-minute miracle. “I will be reborn again and do great work. I have lost all courage now,” he had concluded his message.
