Sonu Sood reveals he got 27,538 requests for oxygen, beds and medicines in the last 24 hours

India is currently facing a public health emergency. There is an acute shortage of ventilators, medicines, hospital beds, vaccines and oxygen cylinder supply in the country in current times as the second wave of COVID-19 devastates India. Amid this, actor and philanthropist Sonu Sood has been getting countless requests for beds and other vital resources every day. Even while COVID-19 positive some weeks back, he was coordinating with his team and hospitals, trying to help those in need as much as possible. Now, Sonu has taken to Twitter and revealed the massive number of requests he received in 24 hours for oxygen, beds, and medicines. The actor tweeted, 'This has to End' as he shared the bifurcation of the 27,538 requests received. He said that 70% of the requests came from the capital of India whereas 20% of them were from Uttar Pradesh and 10% from the rest of India. In his next tweet, Sonu highlighted the situation of the country. He wrote, 'Situation of my country right now : The people who are in the hospitals want to Get Out. The people who are standing outside the hospitals want to Get In.' Sonu has been running so many initiatives that benefit the lesser privileged that sometimes it's hard to keep up. Touted as a 'saviour, earlier, this week, the actor took to Instagram and recorded a video while appealing to the government to think about the future of those children who have lost one or both their parents in this pandemic. Sonu suggested that the education of these children must be made free of cost. Global icon Priyanka Chopra Jonas seconded his views. She applauded him for identifying the problem and also coming up with suggestions of his own. Priyanka, in her post, wrote, '...I fully support Sonu’s ideas and I will actively work towards finding ways to support education because I have always believed that #educationforeverychild is a birthright.'
